MARCH 1, FRIDAY
ACTIVATE YOUR COVENANT IN CHRIST
MAIN TEXT: Luke 22:19-20 (KJV) – And He took the bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.
Second text: Philippians 3:14 – I press unto towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
The word covenant can be defined in simple terms as a relationship between two (2) parties that include promises and obligations. God’s covenant with men such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, David and many more illustrates to us what a covenant means and how one can enjoy God’s love, by upholding His laws and commandments. From our simple definition we see that a covenant is a relationship between two parties that include promises and obligations.
Adam’s obligation included looking after the garden of Eden, while God’s promise to him was eternal life by not eating the forbidden fruit, which he later ate with his wife Eve and the covenant was broken. The covenant was later restored through the blood and body of Jesus Christ. This is to restore the eternal life as promised by God to Adam when they made a covenant in the beginning.
This covenant can only be restored by way of activating our covenant in Christ. They are many times that we have fallen through sin but through Christ our covenant with God is activated .
Brethren, to activate something is to start it off, trigger it, or set it in motion. Is your covenant with your maker activated yet? A life without Christ is full of crisis. Activate that covenant today and watch He take over all the issues of your life. Be blessed
KNOW THEREFORE THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD IS GOD; HE IS THE FAITHFUL GOD, KEEPING HIS COVENANT OF LOVE TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS OF THOSE WHO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.
