“But Jesus has now obtained a more excellent ministry, and to that degree he is the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted through better promises. For if the first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no need to look for a second one. … In speaking of ‘a new covenant,’ he has made the first one obsolete. And what is obsolete and growing old will soon disappear.” Hebrews 8:6-7, 13
In this Advent season we are invited to step fully into the new covenant. The covenant made new by the perfect sacrifice, the Messiah, Savior of all. Let Jesus be our Savior, we have no way of providing our own salvation. It is only through faith in the gift. Thanks be to God.
