Exodus for Lent: Holy Week, Wednesday

Read: Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 9:11-15

Reflect: : Jeremiah foresaw the need for a New Covenant that put the law in the hearts of the people so they all know God, and the author of Hebrews says the blood of Christ, which sealed that New Covenant, replaces blood sacrifice in the Tabernacle and purifies our conscience to worship the living God. What worship practice helps you understand the law in your heart and feel closer to God? Can you think of ways you could grow in that understanding and closeness?

Write: Here or privately.

Recite: And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” Luke 22:20

Pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for loving your covenant people so much that you sent your Son to die for us. Seal in me a desire to worship you joyfully and share the triumphant message of salvation with the world. Amen.
