What God Promised will Bless Everyone
The son whom God promised was born when Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah 90 years old. Abraham was very happy. He called the son Isaac.
God made a wonderful promise about Abraham’s children through Isaac. He said, “All the nations will ask me to bless them as I have blessed your descendants…” (Genesis 22:18a).
This means that all the nations of the world are blessed through the son of Abraham and Sarah. Later you will learn that the Messiah came through the descendants of Abraham and Sarah. Truly God’s covenant with Abraham was very important for the whole world!
