The Secret Of The Covenant
The Christian life is much more than what most Christians believe or experience
The Christian life is the most adventurous and fulfilling life one can experience on earth. Christianity is much more than what most Christians understand or believe. Many, if not most Christians never discover the deeper truths of the Bible. They are quite content just to scratch the surface of the Bible message. Sadly, many Christians are quite content to know they are saved and on their way to heaven, but heaven to them is something that only concerns the distant future. In the mean time they are continuing with their earthly and material lives as if nothing has changed. The vast majority of Christians are living a Christian life on the fringe, while a small minority dare to move into the center. The vast majority of Christians are playing in the shallow waters of the Gospel, while a small minority dare to swim into the deep waters.
The fact of the matter is that God has an inheritance of indescribable spiritual riches available to every born again Christian who is willing to seek after the full truth of the Gospel and the Bible with his or her whole heart! The book of Ephesians gives us a glimpse of this inheritance and in Eph 1:11-23 we read: "In Him (Jesus Christ) also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all." What a glorious mouth-full!
The problem is that although most Christians have read this passage and have heard it before, the dynamic reality of it's contents is revealed to, and experienced by only a few. Why is that? Why do only a small percentage of Christians ever discover these truths? Why do only a small percentage of Christians move into the center and the deep waters of the Bible message, in spite of God's rich inheritance in Christ and the awesome promises of His Word for every Christian? The reason is because of the secret of the Covenant!
