OUR LORD IS A COVENANT KEEPING GOD. By His covenant, He is reconciled to His people; He is at peace with them, and dwells among them, through the work of Jesus. He has made a covenant in which they have an interest, from which all their blessings flow, and on which their confidence is founded. Of this covenant, God is ever mindful. He is mindful of the sacrifice of Jesus as our surety; of the relationship in which He was pleased to manifest Himself as our Father; of the state in which He viewed us as wretched lost sinners; of the provision He made for His own glory and our needs; of the promise made to Jesus including all the promises made to us; of the oath He swore, that He would not be angry with us; of the blood of His Son, as the victim slain to confirm and ratify it; of the end He had in view in making it, even the display of all His glorious perfections, our eternal salvation. He will ever be mindful of His covenant: He cannot forget it; He will not act contrary to it, but will confirm it even to the end. Beloved, let us also be ever mindful of His covenant.
Firmer than heaven His covenant stands,
Tho' earth should shake, and skies depart;
We're safe in our Redeemer's hands,
Who bears our name upon His heart;
For us He lived, and died, and rose,
And triumphed over all our foes.
