Children of the Promise

When I was praying last Saturday morning,
I was struck by the verse in Galatians:
"heirs according to the promise..."

We belong to Christ,
and we are heirs of the promise
given to Abraham!
We come from a long line of
people of faith!
Isn't that amazing?!!

In Galatians 4:28,
St. Paul repeats this truth,
that we are children of the promise.
We are a part of the family of faith.
We are not under the slavery of the "law".
I like to think of my family tree,
with Abraham at the very top.
Isn't it exciting to know of our heritage
and what God has in store for us 
who believe?

Every week I choose one wonderful
visitor who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.

I know how much time and effort
it takes to leave a comment!
and I appreciate that soooo much!
