Everything is evolving, even our covenant (contracts) with God. There were many covenants recorded in the Hebrew Testament, but the Mosaic is most well-known: If the Israelites keep God’s commandments, God will protect them, and be their God. Our first proclamation today records an advanced covenant. Jeremiah speaks of a greater covenant which God writes on their hearts and which embraces greater intimacy. However, Jesus forms a new supreme covenant sealed in his blood. God will love us into eternity,as we live his life of unconditional love as modelled by Jesus himself. This means, we will love each other with Christly intensity, and in whatever circumstance. .This is the supreme covenant for all peoples, all ages, and and in all events.
