Welcome to our NEW SERIES entitled "Promises".

As we look at the Promises of God, today we will look at God's idea of covenant!

From a biblical perspective, a covenant is an “oath-bound promise whereby one party solemnly pledges to bless or serve another party in some specified way. Sometimes the keeping of the promise depends upon the meeting of certain conditions by the party to whom the promise is made. On other occasions the promise is made unilaterally and unconditionally. The covenant concept is a central, unifying theme of Scripture, establishing and defining God’s relationship to man in all ages. In the OT, the Hebrew word translated ‘covenant’ is berit. The term probably derives from the verb bara, ‘to bind.’ The noun berit originally denoted a binding relationship between two parties in which each pledged to perform some service for the other” (Steven B. Cowan, “Covenant,” in Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary, ed. Chad Brand [Nashville: Holman Bible Publishing, 2003], Logos)
Big Idea: The God of the Bible is a God who makes promises and keeps those promises through covenants. Covenants are more than just contracts; they are relational.

Application Point: The next time you sign a contract or click “I agree” on a set of terms for an app, think of how God’s covenant is broader, more relational, and full of love.
