Children of The Covenant by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Children of The Covenant by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Ye are the children of the prophets, and
of the covenant which God made with
our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And
in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the
earth be blessed (Acts 3:25).

T
here’re Christians who say they have a
covenant with God. They teach that since
God made a covenant with Abraham, and
we’re Abraham’s seed, we’re therefore automatically in
covenant with God. But no; the Christian isn’t in
covenant with God. You need to know who the
Christian is; he’s one with Christ; he’s an associate of
the God-kind. Abraham had a covenant with God, but
we’re not in that covenant. Who are we? We’re
children of the covenant.

We’re heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ.
Galatians 3:26-29 says, “For ye are all the children of
God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have
been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There
is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor
free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all
one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye
Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

In a marriage relationship, for example, the
couple sign a nuptial agreement and come into a
covenant. That covenant, however, doesn’t involve
their children. The children from that marriage would
be the products or fruits of the covenant. Read our
opening verse again, it’s clear: we’re children of the
covenant that God made with Abraham and the patriarchs.

Many have written books on our covenant with
God, but the danger of this misleading belief is that it
places the Christian in a position below his calling and
birthright. Our relationship with God is one of father
and his children. Blessed thought! How wonderful to
know that we’re heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ.
We’re children of the covenant! We own the world and
we walk in divine excellence. Hallelujah!

 CONFESSION
All things are mine; I have everything that I require for
life and godliness, because I’m an heir of God, and
a joint-heir with Christ. I’m rich in all things because
God has caused His grace to abound towards me to
be superabundantly supplied, exceedingly fruitful and
productive in every good work. Hallelujah!
