As the main way that God establishes relationship with people, covenants are a vital part of our Christian faith.
The Abrahamic, Mosaic, and Davidic covenants all contained a promise that the Messiah would come and set things right. As a human descendent of Abraham, Israel, and David, He inherited all these covenants. Since He was sinless, Jesus is the only human being who kept up our side of the covenant bargain and fully deserved to inherit the covenant promises. Jesus is also God, and He fulfilled God’s covenant promises as well by providing Himself as the substitute to pay our death penalty for breaking covenant.
So, Jesus is the heir of all the covenant promises. He’s also God, who made the covenants in the first place. The covenants belong to Him and–following His Father’s plan from the beginning–He died and willed the covenants to us.
As people who have a covenant relationship with God, we’re part of something much bigger than ourselves. He’s called us into His kingdom and His family as “sons and daughters”. That’s amazing.
