Let’s explore some of the places in the bible where God makes a covenant with a person or a group of people. This bible study will primarily look at the old testament covenants.
o Covenants are a common theme throughout the whole Bible.
o A covenant is simply a way to define the terms of a relationship. It is an agreement from all parties.
o Typically, a covenant has some sort of initiation. Examples include meals, sacrifices, and ceremonies.
o From the very beginning God uses covenants, or promises, to interact with mankind.
o When God makes covenants or promises to His people, He always keeps them.
o Covenants tend to use “if/then” statements. God promises to bless His people, as long as they do as He has asked.

Even with only 2 Take the City Outreaches under my belt, they have made such an impact in my own personal journey of faith, and others I have crossed paths with! The most special part to me is knowing that even if I meet someone and I never see them again, I know God has allowed me to touch their heart and plant a seed that I couldn’t have done sitting at home. I’m so thankful for this organization because it truly has allowed me to connect with others, with the goal of bringing them closer to Christ, while becoming closer with God myself at the same time.
