Joel Beeke: God in Christ the Sign of the Covenant

What exactly was the sign God gave to Abram? The sign was God Himself, in the person of His Son, passing through the pieces. God was saying: “I am willing to be broken for covenant breakers. I am willing to shed blood for people who deserve to have their blood shed. Abram, trust Me; it is going to be all right. I will take care of everything. I am the covenant-making, covenant-keeping God. I am the burning lamp; I am your light; I am your sacrifice; I am your everything.”
