The Uniqueness of the New Covenant
With Given O. Blakely
What God has accomplished in Christ is so large, so wonderful, that the best of us tend to undervalue it. If it is to be enjoyed, the magnitude of salvation requires the abandonment of casual effort. The reason for this is obvious. God has undertaken the redemptive enterprise at great personal cost. His investment in our reconciliation is staggering. An enterprise of this nature cannot be appropriated with minimal effort or deficient understanding. The condition is by Divine design.
In my judgment, the New Covenant is one of the primary considerations that makes salvation accessible to men and women. It reveals God's objective for mankind, as well as the means through which it is to be achieved. A great many areas of doctrinal confusion are cleared when the New Covenant is correctly understood.
