For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. (Romans 4:13-14 ESV)
Ибо не законом даровано Аврааму, или семени его, обетование–быть наследником мира, но праведностью веры. Если утверждающиеся на законе суть наследники, то тщетна вера, бездейственно обетование; (Римлянам 4:13-14 Russian)
Dear Heavenly Father, the God of Abraham, Christ’s chosen apostles and everyone who walks in the same obedient manner of faith as our spiritual ancestors. Teach us by your blessed Spirit inspired word – that people who belong to Christ today are those who trust and obey your instructions. Open the eyes of Christians today so we all agree that true Israel consists of those who walk by faith in the one blessed Messiah of Jews and Gentiles. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
