Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 1:20 “For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.” But what does it mean that all the promises of God find their Yes in Jesus? Jerry Bridges distills this truth down into two helpful points:
- Jesus in His messianic mission is the personal fulfillment of all the promises in the Old Testament (Luke 24:44).
- All God’s promises depend upon Jesus alone and only through Jesus is the Father inclined towards the Christian.
