2 Corinthians 1:20

2 Corinthians 1:20 - For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through Him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.

What has God promised you? All throughout His word we see promises that He gives to those who do His will. He promises life, health, prosperity and the list goes on. Like any good father wants the best for his children, God wants the best for you.
If you believe the Bible, then this verse is a confirmation to you that all God has said will come to pass. And what is our part in this? We must speak the ‘Amen’ through Christ to glorify God.
Amen means ‘so be it’ or in other words, “let it be done as you said it would.” That is why we end our prayers with it, and that is why we are to say it in response to the promises God gives us. We are saying ‘Amen’ to acknowledge our faith in the promise.
Another thing that we need to understand about the promises of God is how they come to us. It is only through Jesus Christ that we can receive what God has freely given. As He gave His life for us we must also give our lives to Him. He is the Way, the only way. Through Him and through faith in Him we are able to come before God.
Jesus took our old lives and all our sin and washed us so that we can stand before God. Now, as long as you keep Him as the focal point of your life you will receive all that He has promised to you. It starts with forgiveness and eternal life and gets better as you draw close to Him.
