The Covenant’s Expectations (Matthew 5:1-12)
This week’s Sunday Devotional reveals to the Believer what is expected of them regarding new covenant we now have in Christ Jesus. Jesus in his message to the disciples is that God expects them to conduct themselves in a certain manner.
On the other side of our acceptance of Jesus as our Savior, we are provided divine guidance of how we are to conduct ourselves before God and man. We have been saved and delivered to perform good works which God has ordained (Eph. 2:8-10). By faith we are expected to follow the instructions of this new covenant. We are no longer expected to live as we once did, but unto this new life.
As all things become new (II Cor. 5:17) in our life, we’re to let our light, the light of Christ shine that men might see those good works and glorify our Father in heaven.
As we close out this month’s lessons, let us exhort one another to live in agreement to the instructions of our New Covenant in Christ.
