IN COVENANT WITH GOD

We live in a generation that doesn’t have a good grasp of covenants. Today we are aware of agreements but sadly don’t necessarily take all agreements as serious as covenants. A covenant is a binding agreement that gives responsibilities and rights to all parties included. The covenant is a legal instrument that can be enforced in a court of law. Covenants are passed on from one generation to another, and in some cases enforced even beyond death.

One of the greatest things the church has in Christ is an eternal covenant that gives outstanding blessings and rights to the believer. It also comes with many responsibilities. Your place in the Lord is not a matter of feelings. It doesn’t change with the weather or your performance. The covenant of Christ with us is perhaps the most potent of all covenants ever drawn. So don’t do life without that knowledge and power you have in this covenant. It is loaded with many incredible promises that will work from here to eternity. Your place in Christ is locked down with an agreement signed by God Himself. Where most signatures are written in ink, God used the blood of Christ to eternally establish and settle all that concerns you.

SCRIPTURE READING: Hebrews 8:1-13 Now [this is] the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man. For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices. Therefore necessary that this One also have something to offer. For if He were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer the gifts according to the law; who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, [ “See] [that] [ you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”][ But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.] For if that first [covenant] had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. Because finding fault with them, He says: [ “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—] [ not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the LORD.] [ For this] [ the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the] [] [ LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and] [ I will be their God, and they shall be My people.] [] [ None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the] [] [ LORD,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.] [ For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness,] [] [ and their sins] [ and their lawless deeds][ I will remember no more.”] [ In that He says,] [ “A new] [covenant,] [ “] [ He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.]

DEVOTION PRAYER: Lord Jesus I give you thanks for your covenant and eternal love for me. I will Honor and worship your name forever more. I am confident that you are mine and I am yours. Amen.
