Finally, the New Covenant establishes supremacy over all previous agreements. Through the existence of God’s son, we are reborn to a personal commitment to the Father. As humanity grew, so has the personal commitment to the father. “The Spirit as the minister of the grace of God in new relationship, as opposed to a sacramentally infused substance,” (Saucy, M. 2014, p. 58). The forefathers have brought the covenants to humanity as God’s highest desire to preside in love with human kind; therefor, as God’s children there is an obligation to grow in understanding and abide by these
They feel that the recognition they receive is largely because of God, and they dedicate their glory to their families. Religion played a critical role in the lives of the Anglo-Saxons. Everything they did was for a purpose that served Gods wishes. Therefore, when a character achieves success in Beowulf, they immediately attribute the victory to the will of God and the minor role they play in His plan. For example, “The monster wrenched and wrestled with him but Beowulf was mindful of his mighty strength, the wondrous gifts God had showered on him: He relied for help on the Lord of All, on His care and favor.
Casy would try to be a positive influence on every situation. Casy wanted to live “in a way Jesus did” by preaching and teaching about Christianity (McCoppin par. 11).

Brueggemann explains inherency as the way christianity has developed and the structure over time. Christians have an image whereas believing, trusting, and having faith in Him will lead living their life as God expects them to and blessings will overflow. God is the Holy Spirit, everlasting
In the bible, the book of Isaiah, chapter 41, verse 10 says, “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you…” Owen resembles Christ when he too says to John not to be afraid. Owen is there for John just as he always has been, resembling Christ in the book of Matthew, chapter 28, verse 20, “I am with you always.” Owen is Christ-like in many ways. Everyone wants to touch him like in the Gospel of Luke the crowd presses towards Jesus, wanting to touch him because of his healing abilities. Christ describes himself as the light of the world and Owen is constantly associated with light. His skin reflects and absorbs light, “as with a pearl, so that he appeared translucent at times.”
How does one live a life as a Christian that honors and glorifies God? The answer is by reflecting Christ’s image by acting as He would in every situation. Because of what Jesus has done for sinners on the cross, they desire to live by His example in order to give Him glory. However, living a Christ-like life can only happen through the work of the Holy Spirit, who comes in to sinner’s hearts when they first put their trust in Jesus and the cross, growing them and making them more like Jesus. Many characters in books, stories, and movies have Christ-like qualities and characteristics, an example of this being Harper Lee’s masterpiece.

Genesis 1:31, “God made us all and everything he made he saw it to be very good” (KJV). Why do I exist? Mankind exist to glorify God, to minister to those who are lost turning them back to the knowledge of the living God. Matthew 28:19, says, “Go ye therefore into all the world and teach them, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost” (KJV). Dr. Myles Monroe (2013), said, “I would presume all mankind was made to live for a purpose.” Even Christ existed for a purpose, John 6:38, “For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me” (KJV).
