and to Jesus the negotiator of a new Covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks in more gracious tones than that of Abel.
Once you have been born again, accepting what Christ has done for you and receiving Him as the Lord of your life, you have become sons and daughters of God. This privilege is the result of only one thing, your faith in the shed blood of Jesus. The moment you are born again you have entered into a Covenant provided for by Jesus. This word Covenant means an obligation undertaken by a single person, a promise on the part of God.
God has given us the promise of a new Covenant founded on better promises. When God makes a Covenant He is obligated to fulfill it’s promises. All we need to do is to realize He is obligated to do so because it was a Covenant that He established with Jesus for us. Jesus negotiated this Covenant with God, and therefore God will fulfill His Covenant that He initiated with His Son because of what He has done.
We are sons and daughters solely based on our negotiator, Jesus Christ. God is obligated to fulfill the promises given in this Covenant because it was established with His Son. All we have to do is to receive these promises by acting upon them in faith. The promises have already been provided, because Jesus through His shed blood is the One who made this Covenant for us with the Father.
