There is no better promise given to man than the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Not for this lifetime or in the hereafter. No pleasure, wealth, contentment, accomplishment, good relation, or any other thing imaginable, can compare to the promises of God.
The promises of God, found in His Word, concerning now and eternity, are too numerous to capture here adequately. However, if you will, please consider just these three promises to whet your appetite.
- Redemption from sin and death: In Genesis, after the fall of man, God promised to remove the curse of sin and death and reunite us with Himself; And by so doing return humankind to its former state; the glory of God.
- Power to overcome and live a victorious life: He sent His Holy Spirit to equip us with all the power and grace we will ever need in this life.
- Believers’ glorious destination: We are co-heirs with Christ, and are now seated at the right hand of God in Christ. No eye has seen, no ear has heard neither has it entered into the hearts of man what God has prepared for believers. All of God’s creation groans in anticipation of the glory that awaits humankind.
In consideration of your faith, you have salvation, the fulfillment of purpose, and a glorious destination. Earnestly believe the Gospel and lay hold of God’s promises while you can.
