The covenant relationship is the most important subject in all scripture.

The covenant relationship is the reason for the Restoration Movement.

The covenant relationship is the most ignored and least understood subject among our people. In asking people about the subject of the covenant relationship in the last 9-10 years I have discovered that this subject has not received any emphasis at all as far back as people can remember, which takes us back three generations. In my own experience in my first 30 years in this movement, I had not heard or even heard about a single sermon on the covenant relationship and I had only heard about one class with the word covenant in the title. The Lord officially informed us in 1832 (D&C 83:8) that we were ignoring or treating lightly the covenant. What does all of this tell us about our spiritual condition if, in fact, the covenant relationship is the reason for the Restoration Movement?

  • The covenant relationship is the reason for the Book of Mormon.
  • The covenant relationship is a mystery.
  • The covenant relationship is the context for all of the word of God.
  • The covenant relationship is the #1 response of the parable of the sower.
  • The covenant relationship is the fullness of the gospel.
  • The covenant relationship is being a child of Christ.
  • The covenant relationship is the spiritual equivalent of the physical steps of the ancient Hebrew covenant.
  • The covenant relationship has three parts.
