We continue today with the unfolding of the concept of Covenant as it expanded in the life of Abraham and Sarah. How would you like to have been in Abraham's place? You cut a covenant with Almighty God, but the cut and mark in your flesh is in a place where you can't show it to the public. God was doing something unique.
Two weeks ago, we were talking about the original Covenant that God made with Abraham. We got part way into that picture, but then I temporarily side-tracked that last week to talk about the Covenant of Marriage. Let’s pick up today with where we left off.
We will come back to the example of Covenant in Abraham’s life – the very first real picture in detail of what Covenant means from God’s perspective – but I felt like I needed to deviate a bit today and talk about a different aspect of Covenant where most of us have had little understanding. I’m talking about the Covenant of Marriage.
It has been several years – 14 years, in fact – since I last shared on the nature, the meaning and the significance of Covenant, and the fact that we are Covenant beings, living in and under the Covenant that Jesus made for us with His death and resurrection, and the blood He shed on our behalf.
