God is able to do his work in the world independent of humans, but He doesn’t. He is committed to working out his divine will through human covenant partnership, even when humans continually fail to uphold their end of the agreement. We humans continually mess up our end of the covenant, but God remains devoted to his decision to partner with us.
In Jesus, God becomes human to create a new humanity who is empowered to live in Jesus’ new covenant as partners with God. And so the God is committed to working out his good plans through covenant human partners. In this week’s Bible study, we are reflecting on God’s surprising plan to make up for humanity’s role in the covenant and how we can now live as renewed partners with him.
