Heirs According to Promise
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise. Galatians 3:28-29 (ESV)
If you are Christ’s, you are Abraham’s offspring–heirs according to promise.
If you are Christ’s,..you are heirs to the promise. Period, the end, it’s a done deal.
One of the amazing things about Christ’s coming is that He opened up this promise to all that would come to him. Jew, Greek, slave, free, male, female.. All.
The birth, death, and resurrection of Christ has given each of us a way to enter into a relationship with God, and become His children.
But notice the stipulation, “in Christ.” You are all one IN CHRIST. And also, IF YOU ARE CHRIST’S, then you are heirs.
Jesus tells us in John 14:6, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
So you must come to the Father through Jesus, but when you do, you do not only come into His presence, you become His child! His heir. Part of His family. We are not only saved from an eternity of consequence but we are brought into a new “forever home” in relationship with God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Think about it. Isn’t it truly amazing?
