Thesis:   The issue of "The Covenants" is the actual engagement by God of men for whom He plans "Life".

Introduction:   In our last study we looked into the issue of "The Glory" and determined that, at its essence, it consists of the character/attributes of God in terms of which of those attributes, and to what degree, are to be shared by human beings in the future. It is declared to be the essence of our "Hope" in Romans 5:2 and is specifically identified to be the participation of human beings in those aspects of God's character that produce absolutely "moral" behavior as encapsulated in the reality of genuine "Love". Paul goes so far as to say that even though we have the Spirit of God indwelling us, we yet "groan" while we wait for this actual participation in being totally involved in loving and being loved with the Love of God.

This evening we are going to look into the next aspect of Paul's commitment to apostate Israelites: their place in the outworking of God's Plan as He engages "Israel" by making certain covenant commitments to certain Israelites as extensions of His commitment to Abraham as recorded in Genesis 12:1-3.
