“For all the promises of God find their Yes in [Christ Jesus]. . .” (2 Corinthians 1:20).
I don’t even have words to follow that . . . all the promises. ALL of them.
The seed of the woman promised to Adam and Eve — to crush the serpent’s head: Yes.
The promise to Noah to never destroy sinful mankind with a flood: Yes.
The promise to Abraham to bless all the nations of the earth through his offspring: Yes.
Christ is the Yes.
When God promises: “I will be exalted among the nations,” Christ is the Yes.
When God promises not to deal with us according to our iniquities: Christ is the Yes.
There is no other Yes but our Jesus, but in Him, gloriously, all the promises find their Yes.
Through Him, then, Amen.
