I was just about to enter the expressway off I-64 between Barboursville and Milton West Virginia, when I spotted a semi from the “Covenant Transport” Company. Now, I’ve seen these trucks before, but today the words “Covenant, and Transport” hit me. A covenant is an agreement, or a guarantee between two parties, which specifies, if certain conditions are met those involved will receive whatever is defined in the agreement. In some cases, this is monetary. As I drove behind the semi, there was an ad which read “Drivers Needed.”
Covenant, Transport and Drivers Needed. You and I are transporters of the covenant God made with mankind through our Savior. Jesus said if we abide in Him, as He abides in the Father, we would be recipients of the covenant. The Holy Spirit’s residency in the believer’s life is a prime example of what our blessed Savior placed in the covenant. As a result, there is an opportunity for us to experience abundant life. And not just abundance, but also anointing power to restore, rebuild, and realign lives. As long as we are here, it is our sacred assignment to transport (a condition of the covenant), the precious cargo of the Holy Spirit to nourish, educate, guide, motivate, and care for those hurting and loss among us.
I noted the “Drivers Needed” ad on the back of the semi as a call to action. More of us are needed to become transporters. So every day, seek to transport behind enemy lines, courage, peace (Shalom), justice, mercy, grace, righteousness, forgiveness and love. We, all need someone from time to time to lift us up out of despair and confusion; to stand in the gap until our hearts can transport the covenant ourselves.
