The Divine Ontology of Covenantal Soteriology
The one big idea: Covenants are relational statements of the legal and moral terms and conditions by which a holy and just God deals with his creation.
1. God’s greatest desire for us is to be our God and for us to be his people and that will happen because of his covenant promises.
2. The covenant structure shows us who God is, what he has done, how we have failed and what Jesus has accomplished.
3. Understanding the covenants keeps us from error and helps us develop the gratitude necessary for our joy and growth in Christlikeness.
