Not the Slave, But the Son

The Lord told Abraham, "[Eliezer] shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir"  (Genesis 15:4).

Sunday's [1-year] epistle was "This is He who came by water and blood -- Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood" (1 John 5), and a week ago John swore that blood and water came out when the soldier pierced Jesus' side (John 19).  The Church is created from the water and blood which come from Jesus' side. 

In Abraham, we see some truths about Jesus.  The one who came from Jesus' own body shall be His heir.
