A Better Covenant
A Better Covenant | Part 1
September 26, 2021 • Duane Sheriff
Yes, God divorced Israel, but Pastor Duane is great at telling the story of why and how that was a part of creating a better covenant! Pastor Duane even talks about how he got in trouble with a group of people when he said there are things God cannot do, like break a promise. We certainly trust people who are good at keeping promises, but God is perfect at it! We can trust Him with everything!

Did you know that we have sins that we don't even know we are doing? If we were still under the old covenant, we would have to offer up so many sacrifices to atone for just our known sins. Then once a year, there was a sacrifice just for all the unknown sins! In the new and better covenant, Jesus's sacrifice atoned for ALL our sins, known and unknown. All we have to do is trust Him! Jesus's sacrifice perfected us forever and made us completely forgiven! We live from that place of understanding that we are forgiven and from that Love!

Sin is not just a vertical issue, it is horizontal, too! What does that mean? Your sins do not only affect you, they have an effect on all of us. God's grace and forgiveness does not mean we should just keep sinning. His grace and forgiveness empowers us to live better and live healed! We are not just trying to have a good afterlife, we are making our current life count and bring Heaven to earth.
