Jeremiah’s prophecy about the coming new covenant anticipates the new covenant that was inaugurated through the blood of Christ (Matthew 26:26-29). In spite of the prophetic condemnation of Judah because of the people’s sin and rebellion, there is also a prophetic consolation because of God’s mercy and grace. In verses 31-34, the Lord proclaims that He will make a new covenant with Israel and Judah in which He will implant His righteousness in their hearts and take away their iniquity. Unlike the Mosaic covenant which was external and could not be fulfilled by human effort or merit, the new covenant is internal and is fulfilled by God’s indwelling Spirit.
Reading of Jeremiah 31
Lord, I thank You that You inaugurated the new covenant through the blood of Your Son, and that You have made me a beneficiary of this covenant through faith in His completed work. Thank You that Christ now dwells in me, and I in Him.
