This is part seven in my series 90 Days with Scripture which coincides with our efforts at North Madison Church of Christ to read through the entire Bible in 90 Days. In this sermon, I focus in on the New Covenant that God promised through Jeremiah. The repeated refrain ‘this is what the Lord says’ gives us a direction to travel if we are to understand the current climate of our culture (with special attention given to ballot issues in the recent elections). This New Covenant, promised as it was by God, found fulfillment in Jesus of Nazareth. This is how Jesus understood it when he said, at the so-called last supper, ‘this cup is the New Covenant in my blood.’ This is also how the author of the letter we call Hebrews understood Jesus as well. The question remains, however: Are we listening to what God said? It is my fear that we are not. The manuscript is provided in the link below. jerry
