LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING
Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. And she had an Egyptian maidservant whose name was HAGAR. So Sarai said to Abram, “See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her.” And Abram heeded the voice of Sarai. - Genesis 16:1-2 .
And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to HAGAR out of heaven, and said to her, “What ails you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad and hold him with your hand, for I will make him a great nation.” - Genesis 21:17-18 .
Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law? For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through PROMISE, which things are symbolic. For these are the TWO COVENANTS: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is HAGAR—but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written: “Rejoice, O barren, you who do not bear! Break forth and shout, you who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children than she who has a husband.” Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are CHILDREN OF PROMISE. But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was BORN ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT, even so it is now. - Galatians 4:21-24, 26-29
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should SEEK THE LORD, in the hope that they might grope for Him and FIND HIM, though He is not far from each one of us; for IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also HIS OFFSPRING.’ - Acts 17:26-28 .
