 “All the promises of God in him are yea, and in him, Amen, unto the glory of God by us" 2 Corinthians 1:20. Are you wise enough to prepare for the day when you must stand before God? Would you like to live now without dreadful anticipation of that day? Then take these directions:
Establish a covenant relationship with Christ. You cannot expect to face death without fear unless you have solid ground that Christ will claim you as His. The heirs of heaven are those who are in covenant with God. And how do you get into this covenant relationship? By breaking your covenant with sin! You are by nature a covenant servant to sin and Satan. If ever you are to be taken into a new covenant with God, you must break the old one. A covenant with hell and heaven cannot stand together.
Promise yourself to Him in a solemn vow pledge yourself to Christ. God bestows the covenant of grace only upon Christ's spouse. Rebekah did not receive the jewels and costly raiment until she promised to become Isaac's wife Genesis 24:53. "All the promises of God in him are yea, and in him, Amen, unto the glory of God by us" " 2 Corinthians 1:20. When you receive Christ, you also receive the promises. He who owns the tree has a right to all the fruit it bears. See to it that there is found in you what Christ expects in every soul that He espouses.
Consider whether you can heartily love the Person of Christ. Look fondly on Him again and again, as He is set forth in all His spiritual perfection. Do His holy nature and perfect grace make you desire Him? Can you find it in your heart to forsake all others and cleave to Christ? Will you put the life of your soul in His hands, to be saved by the sole of virtue of His blood and by the strength of His omnipotent arm? If you have sufficient faith in His care to provide for you now and in the life to come, you can be sure His promises are for you.”
