10: Christ, the Law and the Covenants – Hit the Mark — 3 Comments

  1. What happens when God refuses to move?
    We enter into covenant relationship with Jesus as individuals, as a family, or as a church. When we are obedient to Jesus, he sends his angels to protect us from harm and danger. The closer we get to him, the more he speaks to us. He guides us and shows us his plans. He gives us insight into certain things that no one else knows. Sometimes we dream something and it comes through. But, what about those times when not because of our fault, grievous things happen to us or our loved ones. How do we understand or do we question Jesus? In most of the incident mentioned, bad things happened to those men, but Jesus was working out for the good of other and themselves. When bad things happened to us, do we always rest on his assurance that he is working out for our own good. For example, losing our jobs when we are the only provider or someone dies who is the bread winner and being evicted from our homes, or living in poverty and living “hand to mouth”. Remember we are in a covenant relationship and he told us if we obey him (which we are doing), his blessing will be for us. What when He refused to move?

  2. Amen, Romans 12:2 , warns against conformity to the world ... getting close to SIN is a grave mistake.

  3. Every time we sin are we "out" of the covenant of God? Very good question! I believe God showed with Jesus's life and death how much He is disposable to sign a new covenant in case we would sin... Or how strong is that covenant that, in spite of our unfaithfulnesses or our big question marks about His way of acting, we still love each other.
    Love is (the essence of the) covenant. No love no covenant. After sin no love relationship demands perfection or total obedience.
    Of course love binds to act well... No excuse for sin but we must be also conscious of who we are.
