The study of God’s grace is as infinite as is the limits of His grace. And God through His Word exhorts us to be strong in it (2 Timothy 2:1) and to grow in it (2 Peter 3:18). By His grace we are partakers of the New Covenant. A covenant where Jesus Christ is the Provider and the Mediator…a covenant of better promises.

But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises. (Hebrews 8:6)

by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant. (Hebrews 7:22)

The New Covenant of Grace is a better covenant since it is based upon His sacrifice of Himself. A sacrifice once and for all that actually removes our sins through faith in Him.

And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. (Hebrews 10:11)

Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. (Hebrews 9:12)

Here are some of those better promises:

  • We are partakers of the divine nature. (2 Peter 1:4)
  • We are receivers of the promise of the Spirit. (Galatians 3:13-14)
  • We will find rest for our souls. (Matthew 11:28-30)
  • We will have all our needs supplied by God. (Philippians 4:19)
  • We will be established and we will be guarded from the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3:3)

If this subject interest you, I strongly recommmend the short 6-part course, Grow in the Grace of God, at the Blue Letter Bible Institute.
