And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Through Christ we are heirs according to the promise given to Abraham. We are one with Christ and therefore heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus, redeemed from the curse of the law. Abraham was given a promise by God to be made righteous, receiving right standing with God. In receiving this right standing with God, the Lord also promised to bless Abraham. By faith in Christ we become partakers of that same promise. Once born again we receive our right standing with God through His gift of righteousness. This right standing with God has given us the right to our inheritance. As scripture teaches us if God did not spare His own Son for us, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things. So just as we did not earn our salvation but received it by faith, so do we now receive by faith the inheritance that is ours in Christ Jesus. We have the blessing of Abraham for we are heirs according to the promise of God.
