Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the New Covenant spoken of in Jeremiah 31. In him, there is actual forgiveness, true forgiveness. The New Covenant has replaced the Old Covenant because it did what the Old could not do. And God’s redemptive plan will reach its conclusion with the new heaven and the new earth according to Revelation 21 & 22. What a glorious future awaits those who have trusted in Jesus for their salvation. This future should motivate us to live in the present in ways pleasing to the Lord.
