Professing Christians are Externally in Covenant with God

Recommended Posts

We come to the third thing intended, and that is: the holiness of the Covenant

under which all pass that outwardly profess God to be their God and accept of Jesus

Christ to be their Lord. This is the highest holiness next to that of sanctification and

true godliness. Now because this is a controverted point, and many who confess an

outward Covenant-holiness that was typical among the Jews yet deny any such federal

holiness in the New Testament and therefore say all the holiness in the Gospel is a

moral, real holiness, we must be the more tender what we deliver herein.

So there are Christians who see the NT as a covenant and others who see it, not as a covenant, but more narrowly as moral instruction?

The Covenant we are in , thru the Blood of Christ, is a covenant of promise that God made to father Abraham. Galatians 3. It' not based on us at all, it' just God keeping His promise to Abraham that He would bless his Seed--that is Christ.

You're reading "Avraham's seed" = "Christ"?

Is that a book title? No, never heard of it, but it sounds like a worthy read. I am actually reading Galatians chapter 3. The Covenant established between God and Abrahm was 450 years before the law was given, so the law can not change the original covenant. We are not held to the standard of the law, we are not judged according to the law. Christ took our judgement at the cross--those who believe in Him. That' some really Good News.
