“I will give thee for a covenant of the people.” – Isaiah 49: V8
Beloved, Jesus Christ is Himself the sum and substance of the covenant. He is the property of every believer. O thou believer, can you estimate what you have gotten in Christ? “In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Consider that word “God” and its infinity, and then meditate upon “perfect man” and all his beauty; for all that Christ, as God and man, ever had, or can have, is yours-out of pure free favour, passed over to you to be your entailed property forever.
Our blessed Jesus, as God, is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent. Will it not console you to know that all these great and glorious attributes are altogether yours? Has he power? That power is yours to support and strengthen you, to overcome your enemies, and to preserve you even to the end. Has He love? Well, there is not a drop of love in His heart which is not yours; you may dive into the immense ocean of His love, and you may say of it all, “It is mine.” “It is all mine.”
Hath He justice? even that is yours, for He will by His justice see to it that all which is promised to you in the covenant of grace shall be most certainly secured to you. And all that He has as perfect man is yours. As a perfect man the Father’s delight was upon Him. He stood accepted by the Most High. O believer, God’s acceptance of Christ is your acceptance too; for the same love which the Father has set on the perfect Christ, He sets on you also.
“My God, I am thine-what a comfort divine! What a blessing to know that the Saviour is mine! I am happy, O so very, very happy.
Amen. JESUS LOVES YOU.
Start your day with Jesus.
Beloved, have a blessed day
