To hear an audio of the Covenant lesson, click here. Covenants
The original blessing is that we are created and blessed as very good in God’s sight.
The original sin of rebellion is a rejection of God and God’s blessing.
Brokenness is the term that describes the fundamental disorder in creation that affects a person's relationships and creative activity.
God will eventually restore creation to the original blessing. While we wait, God uses his faithful followers to transform the world. He uses covenants to keep the faithful on track.
Covenants are pacts established by God to reconnect the people of God with the Creator.
6. The Covenant of Christ - Luke 22:14-20

Have you ever tried to hide from God? We see in the creation account in Genesis that from the first sin, man attempted to hide from God. After Adam and Eve rebelled against God’s boundary and ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, they felt shame and hid. They experienced brokenness.
