The covenant is not just a theological concept, a feeling or something that has its benefits at the end. The new covenant life is one that has its reward both in the present and when Jesus comes. It is a covenant of God’s saving grace; it is a covenant of love. I pray that God gives us the grace to believe in Him so we can get the promises of eternal life in Jesus’ name.
