Old Covenant, or New?

What we do for God, or what God does through us?

Today some of us were thinking about the difference between the covenant promises in Exodus 19-23 and the new promises that we have in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, described in Jeremiah 31:31-34 and 2 Corinthians 3:4-6 ...

Basically, the old way of living involves trying to impress God with the things we do, the way in which we uphold his rules. And most of us can probably manage to keep them for about fifteen minutes, on a good day!

The new way is acknowledges that "our sufficiency is from God" and that our life should be about letting Him work, in us and through us. It's a different way to run a business, but we're seeing the results! It's certainly exciting, and it's almost daily proof that God is real and interested in every detail of our life.
