“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.” ~2 Corinthians 1:20
There is so much power in this little verse to ponder for an entire year. Just think for a moment that every promise that the Father has ever made finds its fulfillment in His Son, the Lord Jesus. When God promises that he will impart to us grace, He gives us Jesus, the Lord of grace. When God promises to give us peace, He gives us Jesus, the Prince of peace. The promise of comfort? He gives us the Lord of all comfort. And when He imputes to us His righteousness, He gives us his Son, the Lord of righteousness. Even life finds its source in Jesus, the Word of Life.
Jesus is everything to you and me – the answer to our every hope, prayer and promise. The Christian walk is not so complicated after all. It is simple. It is… Jesus. And I say, “Amen and Amen,” to that.
