God’s promises hold out wonderful possibilities for us. They are detailed in the Old Testament, and confirmed and elaborated on in the New Testament. In fact they are described by the Apostle Peter as “great and precious. God’s promises to Abraham are described by the Apostle Paul as “the gospel”. These important comments stress their relevance for us today. God’s promises to King David of Israel were confirmed to the virgin Mary by the angel Gabriel before the birth of Jesus and they predicted a royal role for him in Jerusalem that is still future to us today.
These promises, and many others, revolve around the Lord Jesus Christ and his future kingship of God’s Kingdom on this earth. This means that they are vital to our understanding of God’s purpose. They were firmly believed in by his apostles. They involve resurrection from the dead following the return of Jesus Christ and they explain that the place of reward for faithful people will be on the earth. Consequently they are capable of building and solidifying a life-giving faith that offers an incomparable hope for your future that is described the Letter to the Hebrews (6:19) as “an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast”.
