Now those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
1 Corinthians 3:23
and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.
1 Corinthians 15:23
But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to him.
2 Corinthians 10:7
You are looking at outward appearances. If anyone is confident that he belongs to Christ, he should reflect on this again: Just as he himself belongs to Christ, so too do we.
so then, understand that those who believe are the sons of Abraham.
For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman and the other by the free woman.
So she said to Abraham, "Banish that slave woman and her son, for the son of that slave woman will not be an heir along with my son Isaac!"
And he is also the father of the circumcised, who are not only circumcised, but who also walk in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham possessed when he was still uncircumcised.
nor are all the children Abraham's true descendants; rather "through Isaac will your descendants be counted."
God had told him, "Through Isaac descendants will carry on your name,"
So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if you are a son, then you are also an heir through God.
For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would inherit the world was not fulfilled through the law, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.
And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ) -- if indeed we suffer with him so we may also be glorified with him.
1 Corinthians 3:22
whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future. Everything belongs to you,

And so, since we have been justified by his grace, we become heirs with the confident expectation of eternal life."
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to serve those who will inherit salvation?
In the same way God wanted to demonstrate more clearly to the heirs of the promise that his purpose was unchangeable, and so he intervened with an oath,
By faith Noah, when he was warned about things not yet seen, with reverent regard constructed an ark for the deliverance of his family. Through faith he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
Listen, my dear brothers and sisters! Did not God choose the poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that he promised to those who love him?
The one who conquers will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
Everything he owned Abraham left to his son Isaac.
The time is coming when Jacob will take root; Israel will blossom and grow branches. The produce will fill the surface of the world.
Or is God the God of the Jews only? Is he not the God of the Gentiles too? Yes, of the Gentiles too!
So then those who believe are blessed along with Abraham the believer.
But you, brothers and sisters, are children of the promise like Isaac.
