So What Does God Expect of You?

So what does God expect of you – and of all of us?  He expects us to be what he created us to be: the covenant partner in whom h takes delight, his image bearer commissioned to lead a parade of thanksgiving from the center of worship (Eden, and later, the temple) out to the ends of the earth, with the whole creation in humanity’s train.  God created us in ethical splendor and strength, capable of fulfilling our destiny of completing the commission of bringing his kingdom off glory to the ends of the earth.
