Genesis 21:8-21 – Casting Out the Bondwoman

Genesis 21:8-21 – Casting Out the Bondwoman

Paul gives us one of the most foundational principles for a victorious Christian life when he says in Gal 2:16, “We know that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ…. for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.” We’ll actually see the ramifications of that principle in our story today in Genesis 21 which serves as an allegory about the two covenants of law and grace. And we will learn how we can only truly be saved if we are under the covenant of grace, and that the two covenants cannot be mixed together. Those who try are doomed to failure.
