Realizing the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God.

Embody the Promises

How shall the people we love realize the promises of God?

The Christian faith orients us toward God and others. From God we seek blessings and glory; to others, we extend blessings, so that they might live for God and His glory. Central to this life of blessing and blessedness are the precious and very great promises God held out to our forebears and, through them, to us (2 Pet. 1.5).

Jesus confirmed the promises to Jews and Gentiles alike by serving according to the truth of God (Rom. 15.8, 9). He embodied the promises of God (2 Cor. 1.20) and, thus, through His words and works, drew people into the orbit of God's blessings and glory and empowered them to show that glory and be a blessing to others.

What was true for the Lord Jesus must be true for us as well. The more we embody the promises of God - "I will be your God and you will be My people" - the more, through service in love and truth, we will enable others to know them as well.

Service in love and truth: This is the way others can know the precious and very great promises of God.
