Book of Galatians

Day 29

READ Galatians 4:28-31
Now you, brothers and sisters, like Isaac, are children of promise. At that time the son born according to the flesh persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now. But what does Scripture say? “Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son.” Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

In these verses, Paul concludes the allegory of Abraham’s two sons, Ishmael and Isaac, by emphasizing that believers are children of promise, like Isaac. He contrasts the bondage of the law with the freedom of faith, urging believers to cast out the slave woman and her son, representing the old covenant, and to embrace the freedom and inheritance of the new covenant.

Questions to ponder:

  • Reflect on the truth that believers are children of promise, like Isaac. How does this truth impact your understanding of your identity and inheritance in Christ?
  • Take some time to pray and thank God for the freedom and inheritance we have as children of promise in Christ.
