The reading this morning came from Malachi 2:1-9
We all make promises but often break them (or at least fail to keep them). Today we made a covenant (solemn promise) to the church to bring to God our best.
God has made many covenants with us and He has never broken any of them. To Noah He gave a rainbow and a promise to never again destroy the earth by flooding. To Abram he gave a new name (Abraham), circumcision and the promise to make him the father of many nations. To Moses he gave the ten commandments and the promise of a new home, a land flowing with milk and honey for his people.
When we make our promises to God we need to rely on His strength to keep them.
May God bless you richly this week.
