A BETTER COVENANT
Because of this oath,
Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, the ancient priests held their positions because of their tribal lineage. As long as they lived, they offered sacrifices as a condition of the Old Covenant. But when My Father ushered in a New Covenant, He made Me a priest forever—One whose blood would atone for all sin. I became the guarantee of a better covenant, one that would bring freedom from the penalty and power of sin forever. He did that for you, Child—satisfaction guaranteed.
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Long ago I discovered how poorly I measured up to Your laws, Lord. I couldn't go through a day without breaking at least one. Yet, You came, the guarantee of a better covenant, as the love sacrifice. Like a rainbow from heaven, You bring hope and a way for new life.
In heaven no one will ever say, "I wish I hadn't followed Jesus."
