The New Covenant – Hebrews 8:10-12

But this is the covenant
that I will make with the house of Israel
after those days, says the Lord:
I will put My laws into their minds
and write them on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be My people.
And each person will not teach his fellow citizen,
and each his brother, saying, “Know the Lord,”
because they will all know Me,
from the least to the greatest of them.
For I will be merciful to their wrongdoing,
and I will never again remember their sins..

All of this is possible only because of the perfect, submissive, obedient life of Jesus Christ. We all know God the Father in a perfect way and have complete forgiveness of sins through the perfect life, sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus who is made alive in us by the indwelling Holy Spirit’s power and desire to point all to Christ. Our sinlessness is found only through faith in Jesus Christ or maybe even better stated, “the faith OF Jesus Christ”. Thanks be to God our Father for Jesus Christ our Lord and the Holy Spirit of God!
