 Embracing the New Covenant Obligations

As followers of Christ, it is crucial that we never forget, reject, disobey, or lose sight of the profound significance of this covenant that has been established through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Let us delve into the Scriptures and discover the depth of our responsibilities as recipients of the New Covenant.

I. We Must Never Forget It (1 Corinthians 11:25)

In the chaos of our daily lives, it is easy to lose sight of the New Covenant's tremendous importance. The apostle Paul, writing to the Corinthians, emphasized the significance of the Lord's Supper. In 1 Corinthians 11:25, he implores us to remember the sacrifice of Jesus by partaking in this sacred meal. By engaging in this act of remembrance, we continually acknowledge the depth of Christ's love for us and the immense cost of our redemption. Let us hold steadfastly to the memory of the New Covenant, allowing it to shape our hearts and actions.

II. We Must Never Reject It (2 Corinthians 3:14)

While it may seem inconceivable, there are those who choose to reject the New Covenant's transformative power. In 2 Corinthians 3:14, Paul speaks of a veil that obstructs the understanding of the Old Covenant. This veil symbolizes spiritual blindness, preventing individuals from perceiving the beauty and freedom found in the New Covenant. As believers, it is our duty to share the Gospel, so that others may remove this veil and experience the glorious liberty found in Christ. Let us never reject the New Covenant, but rather be ambassadors of reconciliation, extending the invitation to all who are lost.

III. We Must Never Disobey It (Hebrews 10:26-29)

The New Covenant not only offers forgiveness and salvation but also calls us to live obedient lives. In Hebrews 10:26-29, we are cautioned against deliberately persisting in sin after receiving knowledge of the truth. While our salvation is secure in Christ, disobedience to the New Covenant grieves the Holy Spirit and damages our relationship with God. Let us understand that obedience is not a burdensome duty but rather an expression of gratitude for the grace bestowed upon us. In reverent fear, may we strive to align our lives with the teachings of Jesus, exemplifying righteousness in a world desperately in need of God's light.

IV. We Must Never Lose Sight of It (Revelation 11:19)

As we journey through life, it is vital that we do not lose sight of the eternal perspective offered by the New Covenant. In Revelation 11:19, we witness the majestic scene of God's temple in heaven being opened. This event symbolizes the heavenly reality that awaits those who remain faithful to the New Covenant until the end. Amidst the trials and tribulations of this earthly existence, let us fix our gaze upon the heavenly promises, allowing the hope of eternity to guide our steps. Our present challenges will fade in the light of God's eternal glory.
