The more we see Jesus as the center of God's redemptive story, the more we'll seek to find our stories in His, and thereby thrive in Him. 

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:17-20 ESV


1. Acknowledge we have no hope of New Covenant life apart from the New Covenant Christ.

2. Abide in the New Covenant Christ through His Spirit who lives in us. 


  • Do you know the One at the center of God' story? Have you come to faith in Jesus to lay hold of the life you were created to live, long to know, and can only find in Him?
  • If you belong to Jesus today, are you thriving in Him by abiding in Him as the center, source, and meaning of life? What areas of your life would change if you did so? 
  • Take a moment to reflect on these thing. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you into the fullness of New Covenant life in Christ.
