Switching To The New Covenant

The Old Covenant is done.  Finished.  It’s obsolete because it’s complete.  To abide by it (in case you’re Jewish) will frustrate you no end because it ended.  God doesn’t recognize it anymore.  To embrace it now (in case you’re like me, a Gentile) would be crazy because we were never invited into what is now finished.  How does giving work in the New Covenant?  It is by the happy leading of the Holy Spirit, who lives in us and makes it all an issue of grace and love welling-up, proving that we are His workmanship.  Our confidence, then, is in Him, who made and who keeps the New Covenant for His glory and grace.  (See Ephesians 2:11-22; Hebrews 8:6-13; 9:15; 2 Corinthians 8:1-15)
