During quiet time today, I read: “In view of all this, we are making a binding agreement, putting it in writing, and our leaders, our Levites, and our priests are affixing their seals to it.” Nehemiah 10:38 NIV
Agreements are powerful. It got me thinking about the sacred agreement that God made with us – the most compelling and greatest covenant ever.
The last covenant (the New Covenant) is the most powerful and greatest sacred agreement of all time. Established by Jesus Christ, it is the fulfillment and completion of the Old Covenant and emphasizes faith in Jesus Christ, the forgiveness of sins, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This covenant has Jesus Christ as the mediator. It is the best covenant established on the best promises. “But in fact, the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises.” (Hebrews 8:6 NIV) This binding agreement between God and us has tremendous ramifications. Here is a list of the “better promises:”
Let us unite together in love and stand for a culture that promotes a Biblical worldview as espoused in God’s Word and reinforced by the Manhattan Project’s declaration. As we read in Nehemiah 10:38, let’s come into agreement, no matter what denomination you are from.
“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” (Amos 3:3 NIV) Let us thrive together in The Greatest Covenant, and let us stand firm against the tide of popular culture that would minimize the sanctity of life, dignity of marriage, or the freedom of religion.
Your aspiring servant, Daniel M.
