In the Bible, humans continually fail as God's covenant partners, until Jesus came to fulfill what we could not, restoring us to relationship with God.
The Bible continually talks about God’s relationship to humanity as one of partnership. But why would the God of the universe enter into a partnership with lowly humans? Throughout the biblical story, we see God make covenant promises with rebellious and flawed humans, and he continues to do so because of his mission to restore humanity to their rightful role established in the garden of Eden. But humans continue to mess up their end of the covenant. Until Jesus comes on to the scene, doing what humans could not and making right the partnership between God and humanity once again.
