Grains of Sand!

What you see here are seashells that have been broken into smaller pieces by the wave action at the beach.
Smaller and smaller until they are granules of sand.

Seeing this reminded me of a passage of Scripture where God had a few things to say about sand.

Genesis 22: 17,18 says, “blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

There are many things that could be highlighted in these 2 verses.

My point today however is about Abraham’s descendants.
God has lots of kids. His promise to Abraham involves us, because we who have put our faith in Christ as our Lord and Savior are now Abraham’s descendants.

There will be alot of us in heaven (as many as the sand at the seashore).
I thank God that I am one of them!
I hope you are one of them also!
If not, you can become one of His kids also by receiving His gift of salvation in Christ.
