The Covenant God

Recently this prespective hit me...stay on for a I retell it to you.

In the Old covenant times there were no written agreements when contracts were formed between men, most of the times it was verbal and done with witness's around. So for e.g when Joe bought land from Zach they cut an animal and poured the blood over the land and walked through it symbolizing that this covenant was unto death. Now keep this in mind as you follow this.

God made a covenant with Abraham. The old covenant was a bunch of rules and regulations in order that a person may live holy before a Holy God. Keeping all the rules and doing everything according to the letter of the law was difficult and in order to change the covenant and save us God choose to die by sending His only son Jesus on the cross. When Jesus died He gave us a testament. A testament is the will of the person which we have inhertied. So as I see this.. it's under the new testament we have rights, privileges and Grace because what Jesus left us as an inheritance. Isn't that wonderful?

When God looked upon the failing man in the Old Covenant He saw failure of men and when He see's us He thinks we are amazing because of what Jesus did on that cross.

Our God is an awesome God.

Have a Blessed Day!
