Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the slave woman and her son, for the son of the slave woman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman.” So then, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman. Galatians 4:30-31
As Ishmael, Abraham’s son of the bondwoman Hagar, did not inherit with Isaac, son of Abraham by Sarah, but was cast out, so also those who are of the flesh descendants of Abraham but not of the faith of Abraham will be cast out and not inherit the promises. Only those who trust in Jesus Christ, the Seed of Abraham who atoned for the sins of all, will inherit the promise of forgiveness and life eternal.
Grant that I trust in Thee alone, O Christ, that I might receive Your pardon and inherit the eternal joys of heaven. Amen.
