God made a Covenant with His chosen people, Israel. An Old Covenant based on His Law, and a Covenant meant for them alone. But now, through the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, there is a New Covenant. One that is all inclusive, and based on the work Jesus did on the Cross. When we receive Him as our Lord and Savior, our faith is counted as righteousness, and we too become partakers in God’s blessed New Covenant. Once and for all our sins are forgiven, and we are reconciled back to God forever!
