Covenant Grace

2 Samuel 23:5


The grace of God, by which we are saved, is set forth in the Word of God as Covenant Grace (Ephesians 1:2-6; 2 Timothy 1:9). Salvation is the result of a covenant made between the three Persons of the Holy Trinity before the world began. In that blessed, firm, and everlasting covenant of grace four things happened...


  1. A people were chosen unto salvation (2 Thessalonians 2:13-14). All who will be saved in time were chosen to salvation before the world began.
  2. A ransom was found for the redemption of the chosen (Job 33:24; Revelation 13:8). Christ, the Son of God, stepped forth and volunteered to die in the room and stead of his chosen; and he was accepted as the Lamb of God slain for us from the foundation of the world.
  3. A seal was pledged. — The Lord Jesus, the great Angel of the Covenant (Revelation 10:1-3), gave command saying, ŇHurt not the earth till we have sealed the hundred and forty and four thousand,Ó my elect by my Spirit (2 Peter 3:9; Ephesians 1:13-14).
  4. The salvation of GodŐs elect was secured in divine predestination. Yes, GodŐs elect were saved from eternity in covenant grace. That is precisely stated in Holy Scripture (Romans 8:28-30; Ephesians 1:3-6).


Saving grace is covenant grace. You cannot understand what the Bible teaches about grace unless you begin in eternity, in the everlasting covenant
