The Spirit Gives Life
The old covenant WAS glorious, past tense, but the new covenant NOW outshines the old. Every time we criticize someone else we are acting under the law – because criticism kills, love brings life. A lot of words we use to criticize are rooted in trying to make ourselves look better. Boldness of speech is not harsh speech – it is a boldness that when the rocks are even being thrown at you you can still say “I love you” and forgive. Start paying attention to the mercy and grace of the new covenant and start showing it on others.
