New Covenant

But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. Romans 3:21 NLT

If you read some scriptures in Exodus, they had some laws that made you shake your head. No eating pork. If you commit adultery, you die for your sin. The list goes on. With Jesus, a new covenant was established. 

This is not saying the old covenant doesn’t exist. There are commandments that God expects us to keep in our daily lives. Beyond that, there is one thing he expects us to do above all things: place our faith in Jesus.

If we believe, we receive salvation. Our sins are forgiven. God’s judgement is averted. It is propitiation of our sins. We are declared righteous. We will one day be fully sanctified in the Kingdom of God eternally. What a bright future we have.

 We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. Romans 3:22 NLT
