Covenant Essays One Book

The Christ Light
On the Meaning and Purpose of Life

Everyone, younger or older, sooner or later comes face to face with the question, "Why am I here?" Asking about the purpose of living at this time and in this world creates focus and requires light. For younger people this probing is part of growing up. Still maturing people in times of change are also searching for motivation. In The Christ Light you will find the resolve to live summed up simply: Glory to God. Rather than self-satisfactions as fame, wealth, power, opioids, or a hedonistic drift to the end, the good way opens up before you. In fact, upon reflection you will see the Way in distinction from other ways.

Covenant Essays
One


The essays in this collection, created over a fifteen-year span, stand on their own, although several themes carry through-Jesus's lordship, the kingdom, the church, the faith; these constitute constants framed by the three Forms of Unity, that is, the original stuff of the Reformation.

You will notice going through the doors that I concentrate on neglected biblical themes soon to be in the forefront of discussions and debates. This is true for each of the documents. For good reasons, then, I sought out this web page's title, COVENANT STUDIES. Unless all the Scriptures live in the Church and the Kingdom of Christ Jesus, the people of the Lord serve him less than he calls for.
