The Kingdom and the Covenant
This article series examines two important and inseparable topics: God’s kingdom and our covenant relationship with him. We’ll discover how the new covenant brings us into his kingdom and the kingdom provides all the covenant’s benefits.
Part 1 — Two Inseparable Topics
God’s eternal kingdom is his domain and the context for everything he does. He rules sovereignly over everything and every being that exists in every realm.
Discover why covenant is an important theme in the Bible, why it’s essential to our relationship with God, and why it changes how we think and behave.
The covenants in the Bible, including those between people and those God makes, reveal the strength and beauty of our covenant relationship with God.
God’s kingdom and the new covenant he invites us to enter are inseparable, what we could consider two aspects of the same topic.
Part 2 — Kingdom-Covenant Elements
Covenant terms identify the relationship’s purpose, grant specific rights and privileges, and impose specific responsibilities on each partner.
Making a covenant commitment involves sacrificing one’s independence and focusing instead on the partner’s needs, well-being and success.
Becoming like Jesus isn’t optional. Covenant identity is essential for covenant life and engaging in Father’s kingdom.
