Summary

covenant is a sacred agreement between two parties. In our context, it’s a sacred agreement between two parties who deeply love one another; God our Maker with we His creatures. In the OT we read of many covenants (sacred agreements) that God initiated and established with His people. Sadly, most of them were broken. But even in the OT, a New Covenant was promised (see Jeremiah 31:31-34). This New Covenant would be one that could not be broken. The New Covenant would be established by God’s Son, who walked in perfect, unbroken obedience and fellowship with God the Father. Yet this Righteous One would become the sacrificial Lamb to suffer the punishment for the unrighteous ones and they would be us. 1 Peter 1:18-19 illuminates it clearly: “For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.” (NLT) This sacred agreement established by Christ is extraordinary! It’s called the New Covenant. And it is extended unto you…
