Am I a Child of the Promise?

Not all ethnic Israelites were (or are) children of the promise. Isaac was; Ishmael wasn’t. Jacob was; Esau wasn’t. These men, chosen that God’s purpose of election might stand, are examples of God’s amazing grace. They comprise a remnant of Israelites that reaches into a manger in Bethlehem and culminates in Jesus. He is the child of the promise, and when we belong to him, we are children of the promise, too. Romans 9:6–13 teaches us that God is building a spiritual people, according to his sovereign will, out of a sinful humanity.
