The Second Covenant

“The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven” (1 Corinthians 15:45-47). “Then said He, Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that He may establish the second” (Hebrews 10:9). God made a covenant with Israel... Read more →

Living Water

“Jesus answered … The water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:13,14). These few words vividly describe the life under grace. They can best be understood when considered in contrast to the conditions of the life under... Read more →
