The New Covenant is fully undertaken by God, in Christ, man can contribute nothing to the Covenant.


But, if you just leave it there it gives the impression that, because it’s all God, man has no responsibility, and it’s totally unconditional.


But if the use of the word “if” signifies a condition, then, “if you believe”, and, “if you continue to believe”, are conditions to the Covenant.


We can’t add anything to the Covenant, but we must have the one prerequisite to entering it and remaining in it: faith.


You can legitimately say your Faith is a gift from God, but you can’t say you’re not personally responsible for what you do with that precious gift.
