A Sunday morning sermon by Pastor David Singh.
God's faithfulness flows from the steadfast love of God. He wants a relationship that won't be broken. Covenant relationships are meant to reflect God; they are to last and not come to an end. They are meant to grow and keep on growing.
John 3:23b says: "the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord". This is the thrust of the verse, but too often, our attention gets fixated on the first half of the verse "The wages of sin is death". God's invitation is to belong and be loved and to grow in this love moment by moment. This is life.
It is this understanding of God's faithfulness and steadfast love that is at the core of making a covenant with God. Committing to a covenant relationship with God is to enjoy being loved and cared for. Enjoying one another becomes the core of the relationship with God.
On our part we keep the covenant by being more in love with God and wanting to please him above all else. Love and right
