“But I Will Establish My Covenant With You!” (Genesis 6:18)

“But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you.”(Genesis 6:18)

Relationships are formed from birth. Parents form a bond with their infant and this is to grow throughout the childhood. The parents give the necessary care such as food, clothing, shelter, etc. Other needs are met such emotional and spiritual. Parents agree to this relationship until the child reaches adulthood and sometimes beyond. This agreement can be by natural birth or adoption.

God has made agreements called covenant. A covenant is normally made between two parties. According to an online Bible dictionary, covenant is Latin meaning “a coming together.”1 One of the earliest covenants was between God and Noah. Noah was righteous before God. So when God decided to flood and destroy the earth, Noah and his family were saved. Instructions were given to build the ark to save them, and the instructions were followed.

God’s character in saving people continues today. The covenant is with His only Son, Jesus. A person believing in Jesus has entered to the ark of safety. God promises that he or she will live forever and ever.

Challenge: Believer, consider the covenants in your life. Consider God has made a binding agreement to never leave or forsake believers in Christ Jesus. Share this good news with others so they can be a part of the coming together with Jesus.
