COVENANT OF GRACE

Series: “Covenant” part 3

Chris Vaught, Sr. Pastor

 

Genesis 12: 1-3The Lord said to Abram: “Go from your land, your relatives, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you, I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, I will curse anyone who treats you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

 

God is offering you a covenant of GRACE.

 

Genesis 15: 1After these events, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield; your reward will be very great.

Vs. 5-7He took him outside and said, “Look at the sky and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” Then he said to him, “Your offspring will be that numerous.” 6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness. 7 He also said to him, “I am the Lord who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to possess.”

Vs. 9-12He said to him, “Bring me a three-year-old cow, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” 10 So he brought all these to him, cut them in half, and laid the pieces opposite each other, but he did not cut the birds in half. 11 Birds of prey came down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away. 12 As the sun was setting, a deep sleep came over Abram, and suddenly great terror and darkness descended on him.

Vs. 17When the sun had set and it was dark, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch appeared and passed between the divided animals. 18 On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram.

1. God is FOR YOU and He CALLS YOU to follow Him by FAITH.  (vs. 1-7, 9-10)

2. Be vigilant and do not allow the evil one to SABOTAGE your RELATIONSHIP with God. (vs. 11-12)

3. God has taken full RESPONSIBILITY for the covenant. (Vs. 17-18)

 

John 10: 18— No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.

BIG TAKE AWAY

To accept the Covenant, you must BELIEVE, RECEIVE and SURRENDER.

 

John 1: 12But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name.

Ephesians 2: 8-9For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— 9 not from works, so that no one can boast.

Luke 22: 20— In the same way he also took the cup after supper and said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

Mark 10: 45—For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Romans 3:22—The righteousness of God is through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe,

Colossians 2: 6—So then, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to walk in him.

Are you ready to accept Jesus today?  

Just pray a prayer like this:

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name.  Amen
