Morning Message of Motivation
The New Testament 16
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
Among the simple but great truths of the New Testament is the truth of the New Birth.
The New Birth is a totally divine process whereby God removes the sinful spirit from a man and gives him a new spirit.
Ezekiel 36:26 KJV
“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”
Almighty God promised to change men’s hearts and put new spirits into men.
Jeremiah spoke about the New Covenant.
Jeremiah 31:31 NKJV
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah”
This New Covenant would differ significantly from the Old Covenant which the Israelites had flouted.
Jeremiah 31:32a NKJV
“Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers”
The big difference was that God would now inscribe His Law on the hearts of men.
Jeremiah 31:33 NKJV
“But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
Men and women would be brought into a personal relationship with Jehovah God.
Jeremiah 31:34 NKJV
“No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
God would work on the hearts of sinful men and make them new creations. The Old Covenant rites of circumcision would become irrelevant.
Galatians 6:15 NIV
“Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation.”
May you walk in the blessings and benefits of the New Covenant.
May you enjoy the fruits of your labour.
May God bless the work of your hands, in Jesus’ name.
