In the second part of the covenant that the Lord establishes with Abraham, he tells Abraham, that he will make nations of Abraham (Genesis 17:6). Later, God introspects that all nations would be blessed through Abraham (Genesis 18:8). From these words, we can see Abraham was being blessed so that he could be the conduit of God’s blessings to all nations.
Points to ponder:
Jesus Christ is the hope of all nations (Matthew 12:21) and all those who believe in Jesus Christ, are made into a holy nation (1 Peter 2:9). We are blessed and made into a holy nation so that we can be conduits of God’s blessings to all nations. Will God make nations of you and me?
6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
