“Love Lifted Me”

     It’s EASTER.  The Excellent Teachings Of My Church Encourage Me To Continue To Grow In My Covenant Relationship With Christ Jesus And To Understand What It Truly Means To Be A Christian. Prayer, Faith, Trust And Thankfulness To And For Christ Jesus And All That He Has Done For Us On The Cross Has Helped Me To Overcome The Tragedies And Disappointments Of This World.  Amen.

Matthew 11:29) Take My Yoke Upon You, And Learn of ME; For I Am Meek And Lowly In Heart:  And Ye Shall Find Rest Unto Your Souls.  Philippians 2:5.  30) For MY Yoke Is Easy, And MY Burden Is Light.  Amen.  1 John 6:3.  Amen.

Surety

One Who Becomes Responsible For Another. Christ Is The Surety Of The Better Covenant ( Hebrews 7:22 ). In Him We Have The Assurance That All Its Provisions Will Be Fully And Faithfully Carried Out.

The word “covenant, ” infrequently heard in conversation, is quite commonly used in legal, social (marriage), and religious and theological contexts.

The Idea of Covenant. The term “covenant” is of Latin origin (con venire), meaning a coming together. It presupposes two or more parties who come together to make a contract, agreeing on promises, stipulations, privileges, and responsibilities. In religious and theological circles there has not been agreement on precisely what is to be understood by the biblical term. It is used variously in biblical contexts. In political situations, it can be translated treaty; in a social setting, it means a lifelong friendship agreement; or it can refer to a marriage.
