Following many examples of Covenant with God in the Bible, we considered the same for the Cadets to be commissioned. Each of these Witnesses for Christ entered into covenant with God, dedicating their lives, ambitions and hopes to Him who loves them.
Their love for God and their hopes to serve Him as officers in The Salvation Army demands this response. I thank God for each one of them and celebrate the place of God in their lives. They're going to be great witnesses. They'll be commissioned on Sunday at the John Batman Centre. Why not be there and share in the worship of God?
Hebrews 8:10 (NIV)
10 This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
