What reflections would you think appropriate regarding OT examples of God’s people renewing covenant for the modern believer under the New Covenant dispensation of the CoG?

In what sense, if any, do God’s covenant people “renew” after a season of backsliding?

I thought I was thorough in my pre-post searching!! Guess not......But I see now where Rev. Winzer had some good insight as well here:

Covenant renewal belongs to the history of salvation; Matt. 26:28, "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins." This covenant renewal is proclaimed in the preaching of the Word, celebrated in the singing of psalms, appropriated in believing prayer, and commemorated in the Lord's supper; but the worship service is not a renewal of the covenant. Jesus Christ is the only mediator of the covenant of grace.
