The Blood of the Eternal Covenant

Hebrews 13:20-21
As the author of this letter concludes his writing, he prays for believers, that God may equip them for doing His will. In doing so, he appeals to the fact that Jesus is our great shepherd, a term he’s not previously used. In doing so, he refers to the eternal covenant – a term that in fact means far more than one that lasts now and forever. Indeed, in this benediction, our author touches on one of the most beautiful, humbling, and awe-inspiring truths in all of Scripture, one intended to lead us to worship, love, and utter confidence in our dependence on Him.
