The Covenant of Grace -Circumcision

Read Genesis 17:1-14

God so graciously promises to save us from our sins and death through the blood of the Lamb, his Son. And God graciously gives a sign and seal of that covenant promise, which for the OT saints was circumcision. Circumcision prefigures baptism, but carries the same theology, applies to the same subjects, and holds forth the promise of God.
