Class 12: Covenant Consciousness


Previous Part

Part 4: People of the Covenant

(This is part 4 of 8 parts in this class)


The New Covenant is far greater than all covenants that came before it although it follows on from God's preceeding covenants.

He (Jesus Christ) is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Hebrews 8:6 - KJV


While we were outside of Christ as Gentiles we had no covenant with the Father. Then we came to Jesus and through Him we found covenant relationship with God. Peter declares,

In time past (you) were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy (covenant relationship) but now have obtained mercy.

1 Peter 2:10. (Words in parenthesis added for clarity.) - KJV


For this reason on its own we should have our hearts brimming over with hope - a tremendous vision of good to come with intense expectation of obtaining it. We should always be acting like men and women with good news to tell. We should ever be walking in the knowledge that God is not only with us but He is also for us every step of the way. We should be covenant- conscious people.
