The Covenant:
God's Gift of Relationship
March 30, 2014 :: Jesse Pratt

…God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless lamb of God. ~ 1 Peter 1:18b-19, NLT

Nothing marks commitment and connection so much as blood. Think about the way we speak of these things: Blood is thicker than water. Our blood, sweat, and tears are in those things to which we give the most. Having some skin in the game shows real investment. 

From the earliest stories of Scripture and written deep in our hearts is God’s desire for us…and the knowledge that the blood of sacrifice marks commitment and connection in our relationship with Him. Join us as we prepare for Resurrection Sunday by exploring the incredible value God places on us as demonstrated by His provision of covenant blood, allowing us to be made new. Along the way we’ll discover afresh the dynamic nature of relationship with God through the gift of Jesus.
