Covenant of Salvation

17 Feb 2018 by SHRCChurch, Comments Off on Covenant of Salvation

Today’s first reading reminds us that the written history of mankind’s dealing with God has involved a series of covenants between God and man. All of these covenants: Abraham, Noah, Moses, Christ (the new Moses) share in common that: First, they were each initiated by God, gratuitously and generously, through no merit by man (i.e. man did not earn the promise of blessings/benefits). And second, God has always remained faithful to His side of the promises involved, while mankind has consistently and repeatedly failed to keep his side.

So what conclusions are we to draw on this first Sunday of Lent? It is never too late for us to at least strive to be faithful. Why? Because the once and for all Covenant of Salvation is now and continues to be in effect (eg. Today’s second reading), and therefore, our disposition/response is critical.
