A rainbow arched across a glistening sky, proclaiming God’s promise never to destroy the earth. A baby named laughter snuggled in his elderly mother’s arms, fulfilling God’s promise to give Abraham and Sarah a son. A good and broad land flowing with milk and honey, making good on God’s promise to abundantly meet Israel’s needs. An empty tomb, accomplishing God’s promise to atone for our sins and restore us to abundant life. A new heavens and a new earth, manifesting God’s promise to dwell forever with His people.
Now more than ever, when there seems to be no solid ground beneath our feet, we stand on the promises of God. In Christ we receive a new heart and a new spirit, becoming citizens of a kingdom that cannot be shaken. Join us at Rooted 2021 as we celebrate the One whose promises to us are trustworthy and true: For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. (2 Corinthians 1:20 NIV)
