Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

God made a promise with the Israelites, a covenant. They agreed. However they were not good covenant-keepers.

But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises.

- Hebrews 8:6 TNIV

New priest, better priest, perfect priest. New covenant for a people who failed the old covenant, the old testament, but a fresh start. Once again, God kept the deal, but the people didn't. So God's people get a do-over in Jesus Christ.

That's good news, isn't it? A fresh start? It can also be good news if we take advantage today of the do-over, that we be a faithful people in this new covenant.
