“And because of all this we make a sure covenant.” – Nehemiah 9: V38
Beloved, today, we make a new covenant with Jesus Christ. There are many occasions in our experience when we renew our covenant with God. After any deliverance from trouble, when our joys bud forth anew, let us again visit the foot of the cross, and renew our consecration.
Especially, let us do this after any sin which has grieved the Holy Spirit, or brought dishonourupon the cause of God’s wish for our life; let us then look to that blood which can make us whiter than snow, and again offer ourselves unto the Lord for mercy.
We should not only let our troubles confirm our dedication to God, but our prosperity should do the same. If we ever meet with occasions which deserve to be called “crowning mercies” then, surely, if He hath crowned us, we ought also to crown our God with our praises; let us bring forth anew all the jewels of the divine regalia which have been stored in the jewel-closet of our heart, and let our God sit upon the throne of our love, arrayed in royal apparel. If we would learn to profit by our prosperity, we should not need so much adversity. Have we not lately received some blessing which we least expected. Has the good Lord not put your feet in a large room. Can we not sing of mercies multiplied everyday. Then this is the day to put our hand upon the horns of the altar, and say, “Bind me with you, my God; bind me here with cords, even for ever.” Let us today, make with Him a sure covenant, that we will love and serve Jesus always. Amen! JESUS LOVES YOU. Start your day with Jesus.
Beloved, have a blessed day.
