CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
God makes covenants not deals.
I lead communion on Sunday and read from Luke 22:20 Jesus says “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.” He is referring to Jeremiah 31:33-34 :
33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
after that time,” declares the Lord.
“I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
34 No longer will they teach their neighbor,
or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest,”
declares the Lord.
“For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.”
- Deals – our idea, our initiative, we don’t keep them, we forget them
- Covenants – God’s idea, God’s initiative, God keeps them for 1000 generations, God does not forget them
Psalm 105:8 – “He remembers his covenant forever, the promise he made, for a thousand generations…”
We come to God with deals. We want something we can manage and we have conditions, both for him and for us. Bad news is that we can’t keep our deals, and he doesn’t even make them. But the good news is that he does make very one-sided covenants, purchased through the death of Jesus.
