ESV Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day
August 31
Genesis 12:2-3
2 “And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Read Genesis 12

*The Abrahamic Covenant, this is threefold: A natural posterity -“as the dust of the earth” (Gen. 13: 16 ; John 8: 27), the Hebrew people. And in a spiritual posterity – “look toward heaven . . . so shall thy seed be” (John 8: 39 ; Rom. 4: 16-17 ; Gal. 3: 6-7), all men of faith, whether Jew or Gentile.  But to “the Jew first, and also to the Gentile”, (Romans 1: 16). And we cannot escape some form of the “Dispensational” here, 1 Cor. 10: 32!
