“The end then of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, And out of that knowledge to love Him, to imitate Him, to be like Him, As we may the nearest by possessing our souls of true virtue, Which being united to the heavenly grace of faith, makes up the highest perfection.”

God promised Abraham, our father, that he would inherit the entire world (Romans 4:13). We, being his children by faith in Jesus (Rom. 4:1; Galatians 3:29), inherit with him. What does inheriting the world mean? – It means that we, like Abraham, are blessed in order to be a blessing to all the families of the world (Genesis 12:3; Matthew 28:18-20; Rom. 1:5).
“The obedience aversion of the Western church has blinded many of us to the remarkable promises God has tied to obedience. These are equally available to us, to those we train to follow and obey Jesus, and to those they train.”
