The Bible’s main way of talking about God’s relationship to humanity is the image of a partnership. This video traces the way God entered into a series of formal relationships with various human partners in order to rescue the world through Jesus, the ultimate covenant partner.

“God is promising to be faithful even though he knows humans won’t be.” Wow. Can I get an amen to God’s love and faithfulness being amazing!?
Psalms 5:4 “You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell. 5 The arrogant can not stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong .6 You destroy those who tell lies, bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors. 7 But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house”
When I think of how I am a sinner and can struggle with the things mentioned, it is only by God’s great mercy, and forgiveness that I can approach Him and can enter into His house, humbling indeed.
“But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”
Psalms 5:11 NIV ❤️ I loved reading this verse today; to know that because of Jesus we are loved and protected forever.
