9) The New Covenant replaced the Old Covenant

2 Corinthians 3:7-8 Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses' face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory?

The ten commandments [ministry of death] was put in place by God to convict sinners of their guilt. The law covenant was not a gracious covenant given to a redeemed people for their sanctification! It was a legal covenant that Christ fulfilled and brought to an end. The New Covenant and the more glorious ministry of the Spirit replaced the old law covenant.

Focus on Christ #9
