Genesis 26:1 – 33, Galatians 3:1 – 4:7
Genesis 26:1–5 (NKJV)
1There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.
2Then the Lord appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you.
3Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father.
4And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;
5because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”
I Like father, like son
Psalm 25:7 (NKJV)
7Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.
II The Seed of Abraham
Galatians 3:16 (NKJV)
16Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ.
Galatians 3:26–29 (NKJV)
26For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
27For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
29And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Romans 8:17 (NKJV)
17and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
