COVENANT MEANS WHAT? Best put:
"TO BIND TOGETHER" - "TO BE BOUND TOGETHER"
-Better still, THE REAL HEART OF COVENANT IS FOUND IN THOSE WORDS OF Jeremiah 31:33,
"AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE."
1. That means A MUTUAL OWNERSHIP, A MUTUAL PARTNERSHIP, A MUTUAL POSSESSIVENESS! COVENANT! Powerful! Stronger than we think.
2. THEIR GOD - that SIMPLY MEANS GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST IS ALL "OURS.” Do we hear that? OUR GOD! He gives Himself completely to us. All that GOD IS, HAS, IS - all OURS, for HE SAID IT - THEIR GOD - OUR GOD, we have Him - OUR VERY OWN! Magnificent! Wondrous! Covenant! Possessive!
