a metal cross on a hillside

Psalm 107:1-3, 17-22; Genesis 9:8-17; Ephesians 1:3-6

How blessed is God! And what a blessing he is! He’s the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us to the high places of blessing in him. Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son. (Ephesians 1:3-6, *The Message*)

One of the central themes, if not the central theme, of the Scriptures is covenant.

God makes promises. God cuts covenants with God’s people. Throughout the Scriptures we see the experience of humanity engaging with God and seeing how at every turn God makes good on God’s covenant.

Again and again and again.

Ultimately, we see God bring the covenant promises to fruition and fulfillment through Christ.

This morning I’m left wondering, “Do I trust that the faithfulness of Christ is enough?”
