1 Peter 3:18-22
Covenants come in positive form - it is good, you are my beloved. Covenants come in negative form - I won't cut you entirely off.
As we begin a Lenten it will be important to identify what covenant we are moving toward and what covenant we are fasting from. Of most interest will be where we think there is a conflict between covenants and where we don't notice that one has taken precedence over another.
