Our covenant with God

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 April 2024

Psalm 3:5
‘I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.’

A covenant is an agreement. Signed and sealed. It is a guarantee.
Pastor Ed Roebert
God has entered into a guaranteed agreement with us whereby he guarantees  His support. Because we have become His children He has guaranteed that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Hebrews 13:5
In Genesis 15:1-18 we see God entering into covenant with Abram.
There was another day when Jesus the Lamb of God was taken like those sacrificial animals, was beaten, bruised, lacerated, crowned with thorns, nailed to a cross, His side pierced and His blood freely flowed for you and for me. In that moment God Almighty made a covenant with you and me.
Down through the history of the Old Testament, whenever a covenant was made, that covenant implied an absolute honesty and integrity between each party. God said, “I will be absolutely true to you.”  What is more, a covenant meant, “All that I am and have is made available to you.”  When Jesus was crucified, Jesus was saying, “all that I am and have is available to you.”
Remember; before Jesus went to the cross, during the Last Supper, He took the cup and said, “This cup is THE NEW COVENANT in my blood,” 1 Corinthians 11:25
Just as the Old Testament covenants were sealed by an animal dying and blood being spilt, so the new covenant that God Almighty made with us, was sealed by the blood of His Son. God has stood behind that covenant ever since He made it.
If you have come into the family of God you are in the new covenant.
