Our Covenant God: The Covenant of Promise

Passage: Genesis 15:1-21

Christianity is often described as a relationship rather than a religion. While this distinction is true, most Christians do not understand what having a relationship with God means and how glorious it actually is. The Bible reveals that our relationship with God is a covenant relationship. Most people live with relational insecurities and doubts. This is even true of a person’s relationship with God. The way God ministers to our relational fears and doubts is by helping us to understand that our relationship with Himself is covenant based. A covenant is a bond in blood meaning God has bound Himself to us assuring us that He will keep all His promises He has made to us in Christ on pain of death.
