Abraham's Seed and Heirs

by Scarlett Stough

1. Genesis 17; 26:2-5, 24; 28:13-15; Galatians 3:16, 26-29. How has God blessed all nations keeping his promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob?

2. Genesis 25:29-34; Hebrews 12:15-16. How had Esau “despised his birthright”? In what ways can Christians despise our birthright?

3. 1 John 2:15-17. How do we love even our enemies as Jesus taught (Matthew 5:43-48) while avoiding the “love of the world”?

4. Matthew 10:37-39; John 15:9-17. Describe how we can express love for God which is more than the natural love we have for family? In what ways can we “lose our life” for Jesus' sake (Romans 12:1-2)?

5. Hebrews 12:2-3; John 3:16-18. How does keeping “our eyes on Jesus” encourage us to persevere in our faith?

6. John 5:39-40; 11:25-27; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 22:12-17. How will God bless all nations at Jesus' return?
