Bible: Galatians 3:15-17

Inheritance Comes from Promises and not Law

3:15 Brothers and sisters, 1  I offer an example from everyday life: 2  When a covenant 3  has been ratified, 4  even though it is only a human contract, no one can set it aside or add anything to it. 3:16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his descendant. 5  Scripture 6  does not say, “and to the descendants, 7  referring to many, butand to your descendant, 8  referring to one, who is Christ. 3:17 What I am saying is this: The law that came four hundred thirty years later does not cancel a covenant previously ratified by God, 9  so as to invalidate the promise.
