God’s Covenant of Promise

Print

Most Christians are simply doing the best they can and operating with the purest of intentions, with no understanding of God’s promises to us in these last days. Because of wrong religious teaching, they struggle with issues and go through needless pain and heartache. God deals with us through covenants, and the knowledge of which covenant is now in force gives us a tremendous advantage. We’ve moved from the old-covenant Law of Moses to the new-covenant law of grace; an awareness of this arms us with the ability to win in life.

Mosaic Law didn’t just include the Ten Commandments, but more than six hundred other requirements. Obedience to all the laws was required to be blessed; otherwise, the people would be cursed. Whoever kept the whole law, yet offended even in one point, was guilty of all. The law entered that the offense might abound; thankfully, where sin abounds, grace abounds much more.

When Jesus came and perfectly fulfilled all the law, He was the embodiment of God’s grace. The law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Jesus is also the fulfilling of all God’s promises to mankind. As many as are the promises of God, they all find their “yes” in Christ.

God’s covenant with us, now, is filled with promises. Unlike the law with all its conditions, this new covenant is unconditional, because it’s based on what Jesus did and our faith in Him, not on our own efforts. We’ve been given exceedingly great and precious promises that allow us to partake of His divine nature.

These promises are all good, and they pertain to our salvation, our health, our finances, our peace, our joy, and everything else concerning an abundant and victorious life. No matter what happens, God promises that all things work together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. This knowledge empowers us to turn defeat into victory.

Prayer:

God, You delivered us from the bondage to useless self-effort the law caused to the freedom that Your covenant of promise brings. We no longer need to struggle to perform; we can now simply believe in Your promises to us. Thank You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
