Our Redemption has NO Relationship to Our Carnal Excellence

Passage: Galatians 3:1-9
Service Type:

The Message Translation renders Romans 4:13 as follows: "That famous promise God gave Abraham—that he and his children would possess the earth—was not given because of something Abraham did or would do. It was based on God's decision to put everything together for him, which Abraham then entered when he believed." It is clear then, that God's promise to Abraham was not based on his carnal excellence but on the goodness and grace of God, and so it is with us: "And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you." (Galatians 3:29 NLT)
