Ancient promises

I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, but they didn’t see it. And they longed to hear what you hear, but they didn’t hear it. Matt. 13:17

The Old Testament is one long cry for Jesus. He is the fulfillment of every prophet’s expression of longing for hope and forgiveness, for righteousness and reconciliation. Through Jesus God keeps an ancient promise with a new covenant. That we get to see and hear Him is nothing to take for granted.

Lord, I am so privileged to see and hear Jesus!
