The Cross and The Covenant
$3.00 – $12.00
“I solemnly and joyfully promise to love you forever, no matter the cost.” Those words would sound beautiful coming from anyone who truly meant them. Imagine, though, what it would feel like to hear that thrilling promise coming from the lips of God Himself. Imagine the glorious Creator of the universe pledging Himself fully and without reservation to you. Imagine His passion as He proclaimed His undying love to you, the one He chose before you were even born. Imagine what bliss you would feel as you were completely immersed into such powerful love.
Now consider this: this wonderful God and this limitless love are not mere figments of the imagination. In fact, it is the deep desire of God that everyone in the world would know Him as the tireless, passionate Lover of their souls. Furthermore, God has already pledged Himself in love to those who have received Jesus as Lord and Savior. One of the most important treasures uncovered in the Bible is that God went further than making a mere pledge or promise to love His people. He used the formal, ceremonial acts of ancient covenants to display His intent to love them forever, regardless of what it cost Him. The death of His Son on the cross, followed by His glorious resurrection, was God’s ultimate proof that He would stop at nothing to make His love known. How far would God go to show you His love? If you really want to know, you need to understand His covenant. You have to journey to the cross.
