The new creation is the fulfillment of the covenant. The covenant is of grace and law, of works and grace. Works belong to the covenant irrevocably, belong to it fundamentally, because the new creation is the place where the covenant in all its fullness is the total fact of life. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the lamb shall be in it, and his servants shall serve Him.
