Contractual Agreement?

Last night I biked home from the country club. It took a little over an hour, which isn't too bad. Good exercise, too :)



Today I was reading that book by Martens, the one for my book review. He was speaking of the covenant that God makes with His people, and how it differed from the "contracts" that would be drawn up in the cultures of that day. The contract is based upon fulfilling certain requirements. If they are not met, than there is a breach of contract. The covenent was (and is) much more relational, and therefore is meant not for political or economic gain, but for intimacy. The covenent between God and His people, even though given with "commandments," are not based upon those commandments, but rather the desire to interact with His people. How easily I forget...
