Promises Associated with His Name – Christ

What is the one word every young person wants to hear, especially from a parent? I’ll give you a clue. It starts with“y” and ends with “s.” It has only three letters, and it is the opposite of no. “Yes, you can have the car tonight.” “Yes, you can go to the concert.” “Yes, you can sleep as late as you like.” Yes, yes, yes…human beings love this word. So it make perfect sense that Paul equates it with Jesus, saying that Christ is the positive answer to every promise God has made. “Yes, I forgive you.” “Yes, I am with you.” “Yes, I love you and will never let you go.” Jesus Christ, now and forever—God’s resounding yes to everyone who asks. 

Promises in Scripture

2 Corinthians 1:18-22 But as God is faithful, our word to you was not Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me, Silvanus, and Timothy—was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes. For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

1 Corinthians 15:20-22 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

Guard against false messiahs (Matthew 24:24; Philippians 2:5-11; 1 John 2:18-24). Reflect on His anointing (Luke 4:14-21; John 12:1-7).
