Father Abraham

“Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.” (Galatians 3:7-9 ESV)

Those of faith, are sons of Abraham. Sons of promise. Faith in Christ grants you a place in this blessing. In fact, Jesus is the gift by which all of the nations will be blessed. This is not just some fun fact. This is entry into covenant with God. This is being a child of the most high. This is being numbered among the stars of promise.

In Christ you are righteous, free and blessed. God has justified sinner, near and far, by faith. Get some.

Father Abraham had many sons, many sons had father Abraham. I am one of them and so are you. So let’s just praise the Lord!
