Promises, Promises, Promises

But Jesus has now obtained a superior ministry, and to that degree He is the mediator of a better covenant, which has been legally enacted on better promises. Hebrews 8:6 HCSB

Have you ever made a promise to do something and then failed to follow through? Maybe someone made a promise to you and then failed to do what they had promised. Most of us intend to keep our promises, but at times circumstances prevent us from carrying them out. We all are human and often make mistakes.

Jesus is a person of His Word and always keeps His promises. He has promised that if we believe in Him and make Him the Lord of our lives, we will become children of God and have forgiveness of our sins and will someday inherit eternal life and the kingdom of God. The original covenant between God and man based on the laws were impossible to keep. The new covenant is based on Jesus paying the price for our sins and making it possible for everyone to be forgiven, regardless of what we have done. We have been promised eternal life in heaven if we have accepted Him as our Lord and Savior.

Challenge: Have you made Jesus the Lord of your life? He promises to save you and give you eternal life. He promises to always be with you in both the good and bad of life. He promises you a room in God’s house in heaven. Thank God that you can count on His promises. Be a person of your word and strive to keep your promises. Be careful what you promise.
