HPUMC Women: Remembering the God who Remembers Us - Covenant and the Cross
Mar 2, 2023 • Register by Tuesday, February 21
9:30am – 11:00am
Room #3, Kids Area, Second Floor
Led by: Rev. Susan Robb
It has eternally been God's nature to create... and to save. Out of God's love for creation, God is always seeking to redeem and make new. An integral part of God's acts in creating and saving involves covenants—covenants that tell us that God loves us and remembers us, and that call us to remember the God who remembers us. The bedrock of our salvation history includes covenants in the Old Testament made by God with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David. These covenants provide a rich biblical understanding and signposts of the "new covenant" and "new commandment" instituted by Jesus on the night he gave up his life for us. It is a covenant that reveals the infinite depth of God's love and desire to save and bring new life to all who are created in the image of God. This ultimate covenant's climactic revelation occurs at the cross.
