God gave His greatest for me, and I can do no less in response to Him.

Hebrews 8:10
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
The new covenant that Christ brought was not a covenant of rules, rituals, laws, and stone tablets: It was a covenant of love, written on our hearts. It was the covenant of a God who wanted a people who wanted Him.
It can be so easy to slip into a ‘minimum requirement’ mindset:
What is the minimum that God expects of me?
How far can I push the boundaries, before His patience runs out?

The covenant of Christ is not a covenant of ‘least’, it is a covenant of ‘greatest’. It is a covenant offered by the greatest authority of all. It is a relationship offered through the greatest sacrifice ever made. It is an expression of the greatest love ever shown!
My response to Christ, must be a ‘covenant heart’:
How close can I grow to Him?
How much can I honor God with my life?
How well can I serve God in the freedom that He purchased for me with His own blood?

God gave His greatest for me, and I can do no less in response to Him.
God, thank you for your love! Thank you for not looking for the minimum that you could do for me, but instead giving me the very best that you have. I don’t deserve it, but I’m so grateful–and I choose to give you the very best of me. Help me to walk this week with a ‘covenant heart’, honoring you each day and in every decision. I want you to be glorified in my life!
