God is the Lord which means God is the sovereign. The remarkable fact about the covenant is that it places God on both sides of the covenant. The covenant began with an unequal relationship, God and man. But God in His grace gives us God the Son so that now there is an everlasting covenant because Christ can never break it and all that are in Christ have an eternal security because of that fact. It is a covenant of equals between the father and the son and man’s place in that covenant is still all of grace but a marvelous one.
