God´s Promise of Redemtion

God still loves humanity even if we sin. When we sin, we turn away from God, but if we ask for God's forgiveness, he will accept us back into His life. God always promises redemption even when we turn away from Him. God shows us his redemptive through the parable of the lost son. A man has two sons and one of them takes his dad's money and runs away, wasting it all on evil things. When the son comes back, the father is filled with and joy and is happy that his son came back. The Father says, "But now we must celebrate and rejoice, because your brother was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found" (Luke 15:32).This can be related to our life today. Some people turn away from God and do evil things. But when they turn back to God, God is filled with joy and welcomes them back into the world of lightness. I sometimes turn away from God. But when I realize my mistake, I pray to God and ask for His forgiveness, which He usually bestows unto me.

God's covenant expands throughout history

God creates covenants with various human beings throughout history in order to promise redemption with all of humanity. One of the first covenants God made was with Abraham in the Genesis story. He told Abraham, “I am God Almighty;Walk before Me, and be blameless.I will establish My covenant between Me and you,And I will multiply you exceedingly" (Genesis 17:1-2). In this covenant, we see that God is promising many descendants, which pretty much means the rest of humanity to come. This covenant refers to the whole human race for the rest of time. This covenant also establishes our wholeness with God because he tells us to walk before Him and that He will establish a covenant only with the human race. God continues to make further convenats with the human race. For example, He gives us the comandments and create the Ark of the Covenant which stores the comandments and shows our respect to God.

God's covenant with Abraham; these images can be considered as a theophany because God appeared right before Abrahams eyes.

Christ's incarnational mission expressed

The Paschal Mystery basically means for Christians that are promised life. Prophets point to Jesus' death and say that he died for our sins in order to save us. Jesus suffers for us because he loves us. Jesus' incarnational mission was to basically save humanity. We see that Jesus dies for us in this passage. "And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me" (Luke 22:19). In this passage, we are truely shown Jesus' redemptive love because he dies for us! Jesus died for each and everyone one of us, including you Mr. Cooper!
