Standing on the Promise
And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God, unto our fathers:
Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
