I want to revisit Galatians 3:13–14 because I want you to absorb it.

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law…that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

But what was the “blessing of Abraham”? We do not need to speculate about that, because it is specifically revealed in Scripture.

Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. (Genesis 24:1)

This verse might give you the impression that Abraham was hobbling around with a cane, but it just says that he was “well advanced in age.” It is pretty obvious that he was not hobbling around with a cane because, quite a number of years later, he made a long journey to Mount Moriah and came back again.

What is “the blessing of Abraham”? Abraham was blessed “in all things,” so the blessing covers all things. In this connection, Paul said that we must receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. I believe this means that we can receive the blessing only through receiving the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the administrator of all our blessed inheritance.

Prayer response

Thank You, Jesus, for Your work on the cross. I proclaim that I receive by faith the promise of the Holy Spirit—“the blessing of Abraham,” covering all areas of my life—because Jesus was made a curse that I might enter into the blessing. Amen.
