We are people of promise. The Law did its part. We honor it. Now we glorify His glorious grace.
According to the biblical narrative, people are designed to live in the blessing of the good and sovereign Creator. That blessing includes the consciousness of His presence, the abundance of His provision, the guarantee of His protection, and the privilege of working as His partners in the development of creation. When the first humans chose to yield to the seduction of the devil, the blessing was forfeited and a curse came on them as well as the creation they were assigned to manage. But the same God who graciously created all things was there to make promises that would reverse the curse and ultimately produce a people who exult not only in the unimaginable greatness of His power, but also the unsearchable beauty of His grace.
