DIG for Wednesday the 26th of July…..not “you will” but “I will” and now “I have”…..Hebrews 8 v 10

I hope you are as glad as I am that we live under grace rather than law, under the New Covenant rather then the Old.

The Old Covenant was all about what men had to do in order to be blessed, however the New Covenant is not about our religious performance or our good works.

The New Covenant is all about what Jesus and the Father has done.

Hebrews provides us with a wonderful description of the New Covenant in so many ways.

Hebrews 8 v 10 is a key verse and the two key words are “I will”.

The key of this covenant that we hear about in this verse is that God will do what is required.

He says “I will” rather than “you will”.

He will deal with sin through the finished work of His Son.

He will make us righteous as a gift of grace through faith in Jesus (2 Corinthians 5 v 21).

He will provide the healing and prosperity that He desires we have.

And the really good news is that it is not even “I will” any more, it is “I have”.

It changed from “I will” to “I have” when Jesus said, “It is finished”.

The New Covenant now is not about us; it is about what Jesus has done for us, what we are made and what we have through Him.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I now live under grace and not under law”.

Hebrews 8 v 10…..For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after these days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts; and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people
