Let me remind myself of the glorious heavenly reality once again. I keep forgetting it as time passes by and days go by.
Let me remind myself of the fact that God is the creator. He is transcendent. There can be no natural connection or relation between God and us because he is utterly distinct from his creation. However, this transcendent God, the sovereign creator and lord of all, determined to enter into a personal relationship with us by means of covenant. Once again, the sovereign God, the creator and lord of all, has chosen to enter into a personal relationship with us by means of covenant.
There is no point at which the Creator and his creation overlap with any exact identity at any point. At the same time, created in God’s image, humankind can be described as an analogy of God: similar but never the same.
Based on this idea of covenant, Israel could trust in God and history was God’s theater in which he promised to bring about his purposes for his people and the whole world!
The concept of covenant has its corollary, which is election!
