The New Identity and Inheritance

A New Identity and Inheritance Paul’s analogy highlights two points: 1. The blessing is given by Promise as an inheritance, not by contractual agreement. 2. The Law cannot alter the terms of what was given to the seed. This is good news for us, because through God’s gracious act of self-giving: 1. We have been brought into God’s family as children. 2. We have entered a whole new world where all the old human divisions no longer have the power to separate us from one another. 3. We have been adopted by God, and therefore, enjoy all that rightfully belongs to God’s children.
