Our theology affirms that God, in a strict sense, doesn’t need to be in relationship with any creatures. However, the Bible shows that God constantly wants deep connections with the people and world he has created. So, in Samuel, God makes an everlasting covenant with David. He knows David won’t live up to the commitment, but God will not fail. Paul reminds Gentiles that they once were outside the covenant, but they have been brought in, and Jesus moves with compassion on all who come to him. What a richness of relationship we are given!
