Have you ever been confused by the term Abrahamic Covenant?
The Abrahamic Covenant is really very simple when you break it down.
First we must understand what a covenant is.
The bible dictionary defines it as:
It is simply an agreement that is entered into, in which God Himself sets the terms.
"If you do X, then I will do Y." = a covenant statement.
The Abrahamic Covenant as specified by God to Abraham is simply this:
"I will be your God, and you will be my people. Walk with me."
Simple right? Exactly!
How do we make Him our God? We learn to submit our will to His will. We learn to put Him first in our lives. We learn to be obedient and to sacrifice. We walk the walk, and talk the talk.
If we can remember the simplicity of this, we can be more committed in our covenants to Him.
What do we get for making Him our God?
Generally..we will be His people. That is a huge one isn't it? What are some specific things that becoming His people entails?
- Posterity- Numerous as the stars in the sky and sands of the sea.
- Priesthood- Eternal priesthood to be in our line forever.
- Land- A promised land inheritance.
I like to call these specific blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant the PPL so that the specific blessings are easy to remember.
If you look closely at the promises of the Abrahamic Covenant they are the promise of becoming as God is, like Him.

If we want to be His people we simply must learn to "walk with Him". This is the process of our everyday progression, until we finally are in His presence. I hope that I can remember to walk with Him daily, through all eternity!
What ways can you "walk the walk"?
