The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,”meaning one person, who is Christ. (NIV Gal 3:16)
If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (NIV Gal 3:19)
There are times when I doubt that I really do qualified for the all the blessings and promises of God.
After all, most of the promises were made to the people of Israel and their ancestors, not the Gentiles. I thought maybe, just maybe, that I, being a Gentile, is not chosen to partake in those blessings the they enjoyed.
…until I remember the above 2 verses. And I remember I actually have a much better covenant than the one they had. Amen.
