The Surprising Joy of Covenant Unity

Psalm 133 (part 1 of 2)

 

1. There is unique beauty and goodness in the unity of God's covenant blessing, stirring our souls with hope.

 

Exodus 30:22-33

 

May God give you of the dew of heaven and of the fatness of the earth and plenty of grain and wine.  - Genesis 27:28(ESV)

 

Deuteronomy 28

 

You have sown much, and harvested little. You eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages does so to put them into a bag with holes. Therefore the heavens above you have withheld the dew, and the earth has withheld its produce. And I have called for a drought on the land and the hills, on the grain, the new wine, the oil, on what the ground brings forth, on man and beast, and on all their labors. - Haggai 1:6, 10-11(ESV)

 

I will heal their apostasy; I will love them freely, for my anger has turned from them. I will be like the dew to Israel; he shall blossom like the lily; he shall take root like the trees of Lebanon; his shoots shall spread out; his beauty shall be like the olive, and his fragrance like Lebanon.  They shall return and dwell beneath my shadow; they shall flourish like the grain; they shall blossom like the vine; their fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon.  - Hosea 14:4–7(ESV)

 

“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.  - John 17:20–23(ESV)
