Been reading Jeremiah and this passage caught me.
God is telling his prophet Jeremiah that things will be different, no longer will people need others to tell them what God wants as he will be in there hearts.
A future we now have with the coming of Jesus.
31-32“That’s right. The time is coming when I will make a brand-new covenant with Israel and Judah. It won’t be a repeat of the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took their hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt. They broke that covenant even though I did my part as their Master.” God’s Decree.
33-34“This is the brand-new covenant that I will make with Israel when the time comes. I will put my law within them—write it on their hearts!—and be their God. And they will be my people. They will no longer go around setting up schools to teach each other about God. They’ll know me firsthand, the dull and the bright, the smart and the slow. I’ll wipe the slate clean for each of them. I’ll forget they ever sinned!” God’s Decree.
Thanks to Jesus and the new covenant we have been and will be cleaned of our sins so that we can stand before God. We can talk to Him and hear from Him direct. No more will God need to tell others to tell us what is on his mind.
Its like having direct communication with the PM and not needing your local MP to intercede for you.
God made a covenant [an agreement] with his people but they kept falling away from the path and so here he tells us about the new covenant which will be different.
Once you choose to follow Jesus you will know Gods will, Jesus said if you know me you know the Father who sent me.
Isn’t that great to be able to know God directly and personally.
No more intermediaries just Jesus and though Him the power of the Father in His Spirit is in us. You don’t need a degree in theology or such you just need to turn to Jesus and accept Him as God. Some people will try to make out this is more complex than it sounds but its not. Its a free gift which any one can have no strings attached and you don’t have to understand how everything fits together just trust God and listen to His voice in your life.
How many people groups do you know that will change how they do things so that you can fit in, well here God does, just so you can be saved.
Think about that..
