Leviticus 26:3-4: “If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit.”
God is a promise keeper! Another way to put it: God keeps His covenants.
What exactly is a covenant?
A solemn agreement or promise, sometimes confirmed by sacrifice or by sharing in a meal, by which two or more parties commit themselves to the rights and responsibilities demanded by their relationship and their agreed course of action, and accept the serious consequences of breaking faith. (Manser, M.H. – 1999. Dictionary of the Bible Themes).
God’s covenants are life-giving for anyone that accepts them and follows Him.
We learn from God’s Word the sacred nature of covenants. In addition to God’s covenant promises to us, each of us has entered into various covenant agreements. Marriage is a great example.
Over the next few weeks “Covenant for Life” will be our journey here at Powerhouse.
Let us look to Jesus as our perfect example of a Covenant-keeper as we grow in Him.
