2ND QUARTER 2021-THE PROMISE: GOD'S EVERLASTING COVENANT

This quarter, entitled The Promise: God’s Everlasting Covenant, will look more closely at what God’s covenant is, what it offers, and even at what it demands...

God’s covenant is motivated by love, His love for the fallen race, a love that led Him to the Cross. It is because of what Christ has done for us that we love God back, and we surrender our sinful ways to Him as well as our fears. We do this because we have been given the best that God can give—Jesus Christ and the redemption found only in Him.

How does it all work?   (excerpted from https://absg.adventist.org)

Study along with us this quarter to find out!
