The difference between a contract and a covenant is similar to the difference between purchasing a house and making wedding vows. Contracts, like the endless pages of mortgage document, legally bind us to certain responsibilities. A covenant, like wedding vows, commits us to a promise of loving relationship. Scripture reveals a God of covenant, and throughout the season of Lent, we’ll explore the promises of God made known in covenants, and how they shape our faith. It’s a season that leads us to the greatest promise of all, God’s love revealed in the cross and resurrection of our Lord.
