Section : God's Burden

The focus of Christianity is generally centred upon what we must do to be righteous and acceptable to God. The truth, however, is that God has made it His responsibility to provide the solution for humanities survival. The promise to the fathers of Israel was made for the sake of all humankind, and so the importance of God keeping His word is paramount. The project that was begun with these promises would take millennia, require the intervention of the Son, and it still has more than a thousand years to go. But finishing the promise made to Abraham is God’s righteous burden and duty.
