Day 174 - FOUNDATION STONES IN A YEAR
READING: Genesis 22:18, Galatians 3:16
As I started to explain yesterday, it is Galatians 3: 16 that reveals the nature of this blessing and its significance for us. It is indeed, an extraordinary blessing.
In the Galatians 3: 16 passage, Paul stresses the point that all of these promises were made to Abraham and his one descendant, who is Christ. These promises were not made to all of the many descendents of Abraham’s natural family line, but to one person, Jesus Christ. And how are all the peoples of the earth blessed because of Christ? He is the one who came to take our sins upon himself so that we could have forgiveness and be declared righteous through faith. This amazing salvation is not only available to Jews but to every individual, of every people group, on earth.
If you are in Christ, then you are an heir to the promises given to Abraham. It is ultimately the ‘land’ of heaven that you will inherit.
I am amazed at what I have learnt since I started considering Abraham, Lord. Thank you for including me in the promises you made to him.
