God, his own special nation? Our official les ,r the week tells of one ~renewal of the covenant," But maybe itwill be better if we ask what sort of covenant this was, who made it and what did St mean; because if we understand what the cove- Dr. Foreman nant was all a- bout, we shall be on our way to an understanding of the meaning of the expression "God's people." COVENANT ON SINAI The Covenant ofwhichwehear sp much in the Bible was a two- sided agreement between God on the one hand and the people (na- tion, tribes) of Israel. There had been early-times covenants be- tween God and individuals such as Abraham and Jacob; but there could be no covenant with the nation till there was a nation. This was first among the barren crags of Sinai Mountain. The Israelites had been rescued from Egypt, and the first thing Ooddtd for them was to make a covenant with them. ~I will be your God and you will be my people." BREAKING CHIEF TREASURE Think what it would mean for a tribesman out there in the un- friendly wilderness where their national life began, convinced that his people, he included, were God's own people! You would have thought the Hebrews, wE as they were at that time, keep that covenant and obey ( to the best of their ability; they didn't. At various times, under the leadership of various prophets, the Israelites (Hebrews) would gather thrdughtheir elders, and ask God to forgive their dis- obedience and promise afresh to obey. But finally the prophet Jeremiah came to see that any covenant would always be broken until it was written not on pa- pyrus or stone but on the hearts of men. But that is getting ahead ~of the question we asked. Why did God chobse just that nation? There is really no answering that until we follow some hints some prophets give us. SOME H I NTS The Covenant was not the prl- rate property of Israel. God in- tended his people to win number- less others into the same relation with God that the original He- brews had. Even though the whole nation went to the bad, God would and did keep his cov- enant with any individual who held up his side of the covenant While it was true that God looked after the Jewish people in ways that are amazing, this did not mean that he looked over and care~l for Jews only. The prophets Amos and Jpnah, for instance, made it quite clear that God had an equal care even for theenemies of his people, such as Asyria and the Philistines. Some of the greater prophets even proclaimed that God had ~eovenant peopl~ in every nation of the world. RELIGION TWO-WAY STREET God is not an easy mark. He can choose and he can reject Re- ligion is not an affair in which we sit back and watch God do it all. Religion is a two-way street; God expects to meet us going to meet him. Another mistake is to suppose that God deals with men only in groups. On the contrary, the Bible makes it clear that there is no substitute for the single in- dividual naked soul meeting God alone, one by one. Nobody rides to heaven on a group ticket! This talk about the covenant is not ancient history. Any one who to,- day in humble obedience oPens his heart to God like a little child, will find that he too is a child of the covenant, but God never spoils his children!

But someone had to snap the picture. It was taken on a Sunday afternoon. Earlier the three of us had walked to church. And Grandpa -- (you know how you come to call your own father "grandpa" after you have a son) --- well, Grandpa put his hand on Jimmy's shoulder. "You know, Jimmy," he said, "I've been walking to church down this street ever since it was a cowpath. And I used to think real proud-like, when I walked your father to church, that the Lord never gave me a bigger job to do than raise my son a Christian. But I feel just as proud walkin' by 'ou -- like all my important work isn't done yet/" Understand why I wanted this picture? And why I caII it "Unfinished Business?" O O. The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of charac- ter and good citizenship. It is a store- house of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regu- larly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of hi~ community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.
