Law and Grace II

Grace of God Theological Seminary

Theme: Law and Grace II

Text: (Hebrews 8: 6-8)


Hebrews 8: 6-8But as it is, Christhas obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.

For if that first covenant had been faultless, then would no place have been sought for a second.

For finding fault with them, He saith: “Behold, the days come,” saith the Lord, “That I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.”

So be, thus saith the Lord!
