S: “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after
that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write
it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No
longer will a man teach his neighbor or a man his brother, saying ‘Know the
LORD,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the
greatest,” declares the LORD. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will
remember their sins no more.” Jeremiah 31:33, 34
My friend Todd told me last Saturday night (9.21.2004) that when they were
in Mexico in June and working at the mission they went to help an
interesting story. He said that a guy came up to him and told him that the
mission they were working with wasn’t a good one and they should come and
work with this other mission down the street. He said that the mission Todd
was working with talked too much about God and Jesus and they had it all
wrong. The mission he worked with, got it right. They talked about the
Devil – that the devil is the one that really takes care of you. He said
that the devil gives you want you need, and is truly in charge. He didn’t
understand why so many people had it all wrong.
In today’s world, we truly need to know that God is not only in charge, but
that he’s in charge of our lives. We need to know that the devil is real
and that we need the LORD in our life and in our walk. We need that new
covenant experience each and every day.
We need each other’s prayers. We need each other’s accountability. We need
each other’s lives mixing with ours.
