GIft #1079: Heading towards Easter

I’ve been excitedly anticipating Easter for a long time and now it’s nearly here.  As early as January, I was thinking about what to blog about for Easter week in preparation of Resurrection Sunday.  At that time my church was starting a series on the importance of community and how we are made for relationship with God and with others.  As part of that introduction, my pastor mentioned how God made covenants with His people throughout history.  This was the primary way that God initiated and maintained relationships.  That got me thinking about the various covenants that God made, their purposes and promises, and how Christ fulfilled them all.  And that seemed like a wonderful theme to focus on during the week leading up to Easter.  So over this next week, we’ll take a look at each covenant God made in the Old Testament, its implications and promises, and its ultimate fulfillment.  It is God’s story told throughout history and I hope you’ll be blessed in being reminded again that God is the One who pursues and saves.

The journey begins tomorrow.

Blessings to you,

Sarah
