Christ and Covenant – Part 1

CHRIST AND COVENANT – Part 1
The Message of Genesis 15:1-20
Preached at the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Bowie (PCA), Maryland, U.S.A.

3In Genesis 15, the Lord comforted and strengthened Abraham with His covenant word and covenant ceremony. And we see that the covenant ceremony (verses 7-17) is sandwiched by God’s reaffirmations of His promise of offspring (verses 1-6 and 18-20). This tells us that the substance of the covenant is the offspring that God promised to give to Abraham. The Lord Jesus Christ is the promised offspring (John 8:56; Galatians 3:6-8; Galatians 3:16). He is the fulfillment, substance, and blessing of the covenant. In Him, we have eternal and undying comfort and strength amidst all trials and tribulations.
