This is the fourth in a series of sermons on the biblical concept of covenant. The first three sermons aimed at learning what the Bible teaches concerning God's sovereignty in the covenants he makes, the agreement of the Trinity in the covenant of redemption, and God's purpose of calling into being a covenant people for himself. This sermon considers a passage that helps us to understand what God's covenant of redemption means for his covenant people.
God gave me grace to preach the sermon for the worship service that served as a memorial for my mother, Clema McConnell Broughton. The service was held at the chapel of the Baptist Village in Oklahoma City, where my mother lived the last years of her life. Knowing that my mother was listening to my sermons posted online was a wonderful encouragement to me, and I considered it a high honor to preach at this memorial service. This was, of course, a time of grief, but God was gracious to enable me to focus on the truth of God's Word that was so important to my mother, and that Word ministered to me even as I preached. To God alone be the glory!
