God Is Covenant How To Pursue Intentional Relationships With Meaningful Outcomes Like God Does


GOD IS COVENANT

“GOD PURSUES INTENTIONAL RELATIONSHIP”

The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.

PSALM 25:14

Failed Commitment Efforts:

Pinky Promise – Cute – tradition if promise is broken, aggrieved breaks the finger of the offender. Not So Cute

Blood Brothers – right idea about cutting (Covenant) but only blood of Jesus makes us brothers.

Swears and Promises – Our head and hearts make promises we cannot keep. We turn to inward self-reliance instead of focusing upward to God dependence.

HEAD -

But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.

Matthew 5:34-37 (NIV)
