In the middle of this Holy Week, Lord, I recognize the significance of this word study. You brought forth the New Covenant, the blood covenant that Jeremiah introduced hundreds of years prior to your coming. The author of Hebrews says You made purification from sins on the cross and sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Let us not neglect this salvation, but honor your dying for our sins to the glory of your name’s sake. You, as the perfect sacrifice, are the guarantor of a better covenant, one granting forgiveness of sin and eternal life with You. Oh, Jesus, I long for the time when all will know You, from the least to the greatest. I bring my humble thanksgiving for your faithful promise in your name above all names, by your authority greater than any other, and according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” (Jeremiah 31: 31-34 ESV)
