Covenant - Promise of Life
This week, we hear the story of new names given to Abraham and Sarah as a sign of God’s promise to them - the promise that this elderly couple will become the parents of nations. For generations that follow, Jews and Christians alike celebrate the faith of Abraham and Sarah, who believed that God would accomplish what He promises. We are recipients of God’s promise as well – and our relationship with the living God is built upon the covenant God makes with us in baptism!
