And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Galatians 3:29 NKJV

Remember the scripture says that the blessing and promise of God was to Abraham and His Seed as per singular, one, and not many? (Galatians 3:16). The scripture also confirms that the seed spoken about is Christ. In other words the promise was to Abraham and Christ.

But our theme verse boldly declares that if you are Christ's, that is if you belong to Christ, being born again, then you are Abraham's seed, and therefore partakers of the promise. But the word of God cannot contradict itself. 

If it says that the promise is to Abraham and his seed, being one, referring to Christ, and still says that if you belong to Christ, then you're Abraham's seed, that could only mean one thing. When you were born again, you became joined to the Lord as one with Him.

God does not consider you separate from the Son. When Jesus Christ appeared to Paul on his way to Damascus, He asked him, Saul Saul why are you persecuting me? (Acts 26:14). Saul persecuted the church, but Jesus said the church was Himself! Glory to God! We are numbered in and with Christ. We are Christ the body. Hallelujah.

Prayer: Dear Lord God, I thank you for making us your body. Thank you for not separating yourself from me. Thank you for numbering us in and with you. I love you Lord. Help me to continue to discover and grow in the knowledge of who I am in you, to the glory of your Holy name. In Jesus name. Amen.
