When God re-appears to Abram, thirteen years after the birth of Ishmael, the son whom Hagar, Sarai servant girl, bore to him, God says that he will make a covenant between himself and Abram and will multiply (bless) Abram exceedingly (Genesis 17:2). Note, how God puts himself to be the first person in the contract, however, the benefactor of the contract is the latter – Abram.
When God does a contract with man, he is the first in the contract and the contract is made between God and you, but the one who benefits is you, exceedingly.
Points to ponder:
God’s contract with mankind is his signed by the blood of his Son, Jesus Christ, by which there is remission of sin, so that mankind can be blessed exceedingly, even eternal life. Are you in contract with God? He has already signed it. Do you accept?
Genesis 17:2 (KJV)
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
