NO LONGER A STRANGER TO THE COVENANTS OF PROMISE

In redemptive history, God made covenants with His people. A covenant is a relationship involving promises confirmed by oath (cf. O. Palmer Robertson).

READ: Ephesians 2:11-12

READ: Genesis 15 and Hebrews 6:17-18

In Christ we now can lay claim to the promises of God. Make a mental list of some promises from the Bible that speak to your heart. In Christ, these are yours. A favorite of mine is Isaiah 41:10.

WRONG THINKING: My relationship with God is not as important as some of my other relationships—my marriage, my children, my friends.

RIGHT THINKING: I am in covenant relationship with God—the deepest and most important kind of relationship there is. In this covenant relationship, God has made me promises that I can trust.
