Great Sermon! Thank you for setting forth the motive of the believer to love and obedience - unto sanctification.
Christ, the perfect Husband and Bridegroom loved the church and gave Himself..bearing the whippings of the law for her so that now He might sanctify and wash her by the Word.. What a beautiful illustration in His receiving this once sinful woman, who then washed His feet in adoration and thankfulness.
The New Covenant. Beautiful teaching from Emmanuel Reformed Baptist . Thank you.
The New Covenant is not just patching up the holes in the Old....otherwise both will be rent! New wine requires a new wineskin. The Old is obsolete, the New has come. We are dead to the Law and married to Christ - sons of God. None of this was possible under the Old Covenant. The Law could only be written on stone then, easily broken, but now we have it written in our hearts - a better Covenant indeed!
Glory be to the Son of God for the New Covenant in His blood.
