The Grace of Christ be with you!

Paul lifts Abraham up as an example of unwavering faith in his belief in God’s promise to provide him an heir through his wife, Sarah, despite their advanced age. Yet, Abraham tried to have an heir through Sarah’s maid, Hagar. What can one make of Paul’s seeming oversight?

  • Paul overlooks it to make his point.

  • God’s grace can’t be earned or lost.

Paul’s point in today’s text is that Abraham’s relationship with God (and ours now in the church) is based on faith in God’s promises. If then, God’s promises cannot be earned through works, neither can they be lost through works. Grace prevails!

Blessings, Will
