The Savior Is Ours




"In the time of my favor I will answer you,
and in the day of salvation I will help you;
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people,
to restore the land
and to reassign its desolate inheritances."
- Isaiah 49:8 -

Jesus Christ is Himself the sum and substance of the covenant.

He is the property of every Christian believer.

Has He power? That power is ours to support and strengthen us, to overcome our enemies, and to preserve us to the end.

Has He love? There is not a drop of love in His heart which is not ours.

Has He justice? It is ours, for He will by His justice see to it that all which is promised to us in the covenant of grace shall be secured to us.

All that He has as perfect man is ours.

As a perfect man the Father's delight was upon Him.

He stood accepted by the Most High.

God's acceptance of Christ is our acceptance.

The love which the Father set on a perfect Christ, He now sets on us.

For all that Christ did is us.

That perfect righteousness which Jesus wrought out, when through His stainless life He kept the law and made it honorable, is us, and is imputed to us.

Christ is in the covenant.

What a blessing to know that the Savior is our!
