2 Corinthians 3:7-18

There is always a tension that exists between our understanding of God's plan in the Old Testament and God's work of Salvation by grace through faith alone exemplified by Christ in the New Testatment. While we certainly shouldn't think less of the law practiced in the Old Testament we should readily recognize the superiority of God's redeeming grace in the New Testament. So as we examine these verses today we will see superirority of the New Covenant of Grace.

I. The Covenant of Grace brings life while the law brings death. vs 6

II. The Covenant of Grace produces righteousness. vs 7-9

III. The Covenant of Grace brings permanent hope. vs 10-14

IV. The Covenant of Grace is Christ centered, Spirit filled, and life changing. vs 15-18
