Today you should read: Jeremiah 31:15-40
Jeremiah 31 is the only place of ALL Old Testament Scripture where God mentions a NEW covenant. Of course, the New Covenant is mentioned often in the New Testament but here is the first time we see God proclaiming that although His people are circumcised and separated for the purpose of holiness in body/physically, they are not circumcised or separated for the purpose of holiness in heart, therefore not truly knowing the Lord. We see in verses 32-33 how the new covenant cannot be broken as Israel and Judah often broke their covenant with God and part of that is because God will be writing the law for them on their hearts from the very start.
As it is wedding season (kind of with COVID), I’m reminded of how beautiful and significant a covenant is reading this and seeing so many couples who love Jesus and each other, covenant with each other knowing how it reflects this New Covenant this is mentioned here and fulfilled in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the new covenant He makes with us.
