11/7/19: Hebrews 8:1-13; Psalm 106:13-31; Proverbs 27:7-9
I found it interesting that today’s reading included passages from Psalm 106 that traced the history of the nation of Israel. It is certainly important that as believers we read this history for God’s plan of salvation flows through each page. Plus by studying the Old Testament we have a fuller understanding of the New Testament.
Then, as we read Hebrews today we see the fulfillment of the Lord’s promises made to all mankind — the new covenant established through the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus, the Christ – His one and only Son. We are blessed to have received this covenant via God’s love and God’s grace.
Hebrews 8: 8 But God found fault with the people and said: “The days are coming, declares the Lord when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah.
Hebrews 8: 13 By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.
