Throughout redemptive history, God intended to create a people who would reflect His beauty and live joyfully under His kind and sovereign rule. As we read the Old Testament, we see that Godâ€™s people repeatedly fail because of their sin, but God promises a a new covenant people who will fulfill this. Jesus obeys for us and in doing so becomes the true people of God (â€śtrue Israelâ€ť), thus forming the new covenant people of God around Himself. To mark us as the new covenant people of God, He pours out His Spirit on us so that we can be what the people of God were truly supposed to be.
