Covenant promises

May 23, 2021
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us — for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE" — in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. - GALATIANS 3:13-14

Get in a fancy cruise ship and all the amenities are yours—the fine food, sparkling floor shows, elegant lounges. Centuries ago, God promised Abraham that the seed “in” him would be blessed beyond imagination. The Jews who descended from Abraham would be the repository of all the covenant promises. Then the focus narrowed to one Jew who came through Abraham’s line—Jesus Christ. Through Him, the most amazing thing happens: Non-Jews, Gentiles, have opportunity to become one with the marvelous covenant God made with Abraham, and all the promises attached to it. Get in Christ, and all the amenities of the covenant are yours.
