5 MAJOR AREAS WE NEED TO CUT COVENANT

  1. IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD:
  • You won’t get the best from God without Covenant.
  • Covenant is making commitment to God.
  • Covenant makes God take you seriously. Job made a covenant with his eyes not to look lustfully at a Lady in Job 31:1. Job’s commitment yielded a lot of increase in his life.
  • God hates casual commitment: it is causality that makes God unserious with people.
  • Covenant is Commitment and should be written down on paper for the purpose of reference.
  • God can’t trust someone who can’t be committed to his words.
  1. MARRIAGE COVENANT:
  • Don’t build your relationship on emotions; what sustains marriage is not love (emotions) but commitment.
  • Sex alone can’t keep a marriage; Lack of self control as a single will definitely lead to infidelity in marriage. (If you can’t control yourself as a single, you can’t control yourself when married).
  • God is looking for remnants that will show what Christian marriage is all about.
  • A woman should submit to her husband like she submits to the Lord.
  • A woman can influence her husband but shouldn’t challenge his authority.
  • Husband decide to love your wife unto the end (John 13:1).
  • Peace in marriage is very essential; couples should always pursue peace with each other. Heb. 12:14
  • In covenant, all the walls of partition are broken for two to become one.
  • A husband’s words should evoke the beauty in his wife; Stop comparing your spouse to another.
  • Don’t be harsh towards her, be sensitive to her needs. Col. 3:19
  1. COVENANT IN CHURCH:
  • Psalm 68:6 states that God gives family to the lonely.
  • When Satan wants to destroy a man, he first provides him with reasons to stay isolated; Heb. 10:25.
  • You must relate with your brethren as those you have covenant with.
  • What you sow in the life of a covenant brother or sister is what God will reward you with.
  • 1 Cor. 11:29-30 speaks of God’s judgement on anyone who takes the Holy Communion without honouring the body of Christ.
  • Just as the human body has many parts, the body of Christ is made up of many parts (1 Cor. 12:12-26).
  • It is anti-covenant to celebrate the downfall of a Brother/Sister in Church.
  • If you remain alone, no one will stand with you in your day of adversity.
