A much better covenant!

Image

Under the old covenant: hear O Israel The Lord your God is one. Under the new: The Lord your God is one with you.

 

Under the old: I will remember your sins up to the 3rd and 4th generation.

Under the new: I will remember your sins no more.

 

Under the old: thou shalt no use my name in vain.

Under the new: Ask anything in my name. You must heal the sick and drive our demons in my name.

 

Under the old: you must keep the sabbath and not do any work.

Under the new: come to me all of you who are weary and heaven laden, I will rest you.

 

Under the old: Honor your parents and you have long life.

Under the new: We are children of the Most High and have everlasting life.

 

Under the old: You shall not kill.

Under the new: We have been given life and life abundantly.

 

Under the old: Thou shall not commit adultery.

Under the new: You are the bride of Christ.

 

Under the old: Thou shall not steal.

Under the new: Thou has been given all things to enjoy.

 

Under the old: You shall not bear false witnesses.

Under the new: The Spirit testifies that “I remember your sins no more!”

 

Under the old: You must not covet your neighbor’s possession.

Under the new: I have learn to be contended in all things. I can do all things in Christ Jesus.

 

Who says we have a renewed covenant? We have a much better covenant!
