In the Covenant of Works, who stood as head of all his children? In the Covenant of Grace, who stands as Head of all His children? What did each earn for their people?

  • Involuntarily - Without choice

  • Instincts - Inborn, automatic impulses in animals which cause them to act in their various manners

    • In the well-known story of David and Goliath, how is the principle of one person's standing or falling for his entire nation shown in the challenge of Goliath?

    And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me.

    If he be able to fight with me, and to kill me, then will we be your servants: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, then shall ye be our servants, and serve us.

    I Samuel 17:8-9

      How does this example of Goliath's representing the Philistines, and David's standing for the nation of Israel, compare to Adam's position as covenant head?

    God chose to place man in a covenant relationship with Himself. This covenant was honoring to both God and man. Man was placed in a higher position than all other earthly creatures. All animals served God involuntarily; they did so by created instincts. They were not created with a rational mind and free will to choose whether they desired to serve God or not.

    Through God's regenerating grace, is your deepest desire to love God with all your soul, mind, and strength?
