The Promises Of God

The Promises Of God

 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. 2 Corinthians 1:20

The Bible is full of God’s promises—to provide for us spiritually and materially, to never forsake us, to give us peace in times of difficult circumstances, to cause all circumstances to work together for our good, and to bring us safely home to glory. Not one of those promises is dependent upon our performance. They’re all dependent on the grace of God given to us through Jesus Christ.

Paul wrote, "For all the promises of God find their yes in him" (2 Corinthians 1:20). What did Paul mean by this?

First of all, Christ in his messianic mission is the personal fulfillment of all the promises in the Old Testament regarding a savior and coming king. As Philip Hughes wrote, "In Christ is the yes, the grand consummating affirmative, to all God’s promises. In him all things ‘which are written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms’ achieve their fulfillment (Luke 24:44)."

Beyond the actual fulfillment of all the promises made about him, Christ is also the meritorious basis upon which all of God’s other promises depend. John Calvin wrote in his comments on 2 Corinthians 1:20, "all God’s promises depend upon Christ alone. This is a notable assertion and one of the main articles of our faith. It depends in turn upon another principle—that it is only in Christ that God the Father is graciously inclined towards us. His promises are the testimonies of his fatherly goodwill towards us. Thus it follows that they are fulfilled only in Christ. secondly, we are incapable of possessing God’s promises till we have received the remission of our sins and that comes to us through Christ."
