-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names
I will appoint You as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations. -Isaiah 42:6 NASB
The Scripture above is a powerful reminder to us of who Jesus is and what He has done. God's covenant promise was spoken to us in His Word, but it was fulfilled in a person. Jesus is our covenant! God's covenant promise to us will never be invalid, because Jesus will never be invalid. It is the perfect covenant, made by God and agreed to by us.
Because Jesus is the Truth, the covenant is the truth; because Jesus is eternal, the covenant is eternal; because Jesus is trustworthy, the covenant is trustworthy. God will never break His covenant promise, because Jesus is the "Yes" of God to His covenant with us and His promises to us. Each morning you can arise and say, "The covenant of God is mine because Jesus is mine."
His covenant is a covenant of peace. It is a blood covenant sealed by the shed blood of Jesus Christ upon the cross. It is a covenant of grace and mercy. It is a covenant of salvation, of relationship and fellowship, of His life becoming your life as He works His will within you to do what is pleasing in His sight (Hebrews 13:20-21).
