33 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Je 31:33–34). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

This is the new covenant. God is with us. No longer do we need priests to serve as intermediaries for us. We have access to God through Lord Jesus. God has written his law on our hearts. We can access him directly. We can be forgiven our sins without the slaughter of animals. Our God is a great God.

This is a picture of Eden. There, in the Garden, God walked with man. Only after the fruit did we hide from God. Some of us still do. But God knows us. He has written his law on our hearts. We feel him in our lives. We see him in nature. Some close their eyes to him and shut him out, but he is there nonetheless.

He is our God and we are his people. He forgives us even when we do not want to forgive ourselves. All we have to do is want him. Faith is not hard. We just make it hard. God is there, have you called to him? This is the new covenant and with it we have a direct relationship with our Lord.
