Mark 14:17-24; Hebrews 8:6-7, 10-12
“This is my blood of the covenant which is poured out for many, he said to them” Mark 14:24.
Tech companies allow their buyers to trade their old phones for new ones by paying a token for the new ones. This is because there is always something fascinating about the new. Far more superior than phones, Jesus brought a new deal in our spiritual walk with God. The Israelites in their relationship with God were seeking to please God by keeping external rules and offering animal sacrifices.
Rather than bringing us an upgraded model, God sent Jesus His son who came and brought a perfect deal by dying on the cross. Unlike in the old version where we could struggle and rely on other people to know God, the Spirit of God who lives in our hearts teaches us and gives us the power to live as God wants. You receive this new deal when you trade your self – righteous efforts for God’s love and Spirit by simply asking Christ into your heart through faith. You have God’s promise to make you His people (Heb. 8:10). From then, the Holy Spirit works in your heart to love and obey God’s Word, makes you attractive character wise, leads you to join other believers in fellowship and gives you boldness to talk to others about Christ. As a believer, are you excelling in all these packages of the new deals?
