Covenant | Pastor Mark Harrell | Play/Download
Covenant - a solemn agreement between two parties for the purposes of creating and maintaining a successful relationship.
What does a blood covenant relationship look like?
1) Covenant is based on mutual COMMITMENT.
Contract is based on mutual DISTRUST.
Romans 12:5 ”...Since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others.” NLT
2) Covenant SURRENDERS rights and assumes responsibility.
Contract PROTECTS rights and shirks responsibility.
I Corinthians 13:5 ”(Love)...keeps no record of wrongs.” NIV
3) Covenant has the INTEREST of the other in mind.
Contract has PERSONAL CONVENIENCE in mind.
Philippians 2:4 ”Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interest of others.” NIV
I can’t do it!
I John 4:19” We love because he first loved us.” NIV
