Following many examples of Covenant with God in the Bible, we considered the same for the Cadets to be commissioned. Each of these Witnesses for Christ entered into covenant with God, dedicating their lives, ambitions and hopes to Him who loves them.

Their love for God and their hopes to serve Him as officers in The Salvation Army demands this response. I thank God for each one of them and celebrate the place of God in their lives. They're going to be great witnesses. They'll be commissioned on Sunday at the John Batman Centre. Why not be there and share in the worship of God?

Hebrews 8:10 (NIV)
10 This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

#7. We believe that repentance towards God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit, are necessary to salvation (on a daily basis).

"By the love that never ceased to hold me,
By the blood which thou didst shed for me,
While thy presence and thy power enfold me,
I renew my covenant with thee."

SASB #534

May God Bless each of these fine people as they embark on their Officership.
I look forward to the events of the weekend and pray that God will speak to those He is calling and they will respond to that call. What greater priviledge than to follow Jesus and tell the world of His love.
