CovenantI struggle between two seemingly opposing things Jesus said around the same time, both in Matthew's gospel. He said first that we are not to hide our lights under a basket, but to put them where our light is freely useful for all. But then he said that we are not to cast our pearls before swine, a very crude way of saying not to put precious truths out where people who do not understand can abuse those truths.
In the end, my heart always wins, and that is to place all that the Lord gives me out where whosoever will can find it and drink.

Here are the three verses of the Covenant from the New Testament, paraphrased from the Greek.
Romans 8:29. For those whom God knows in the inner parts of His Heart, He is determined to symmorphose them together with the image of His Son, the revelation of Father, that Jesus might be the firstborn of many brethren, the first One of His same kind.
1 John 3:2. Now we are children of God, but what we are does not yet show itself in appearance. However, IF Jesus appears to us, we are just like Him, for we see Him AS HE IS.
2 Corinthians 3:18. But we all with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into that same image from one level of glory, the revelation of the Father, to the next level of glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
IF you are incapable of pleasing God. IF you have abandoned all sufficiency in yourself. IF you have failed at every step along the way -
And yet - there remains in you one desire only - to be like Jesus, to reveal His glory, the glory of the Father through you, then -
- you have landed on the right web page.
For here we will walk together, you and me, and together with our Father, into all the knowledge of this Covenant Bond that is Jesus Sent, binding us with Father and Father with us as one Pperson together.
