The promise vs the value

Promises vs Value. Which has the most importance? For example if you look at Water, there is the water we take a bath with, water we drink, but also water we use for Baptism. Although it is the same water the Value of each is totally different. The Value of this water changed not because it contains Gold or something expensive, it changed because of the value behind it! There are many things like this in life. Yes a wedding ring may only cost $500 (for a simple band) but its not the ring that makes a couple marriage valuable it the promise that they both give each other that makes it of value.

Through the bible God gives us a grand promise of Eternal life; in which God cannot break. This promise is of great value but now its up to us to keep this promise to God.

Now you, brothers and sisters, like Isaac, are children of promise.
Galatians 4:28

God Promised us Eternal life through his flesh and Blood. But the one to bring this Eternal Passover is Christ Ahnsahnghong. Then how can we be like the Jews 2,000 years ago who rejected Christ because he didnt come according to there thought or assumption...

God said we are children like Isaac but we are also children of Promise. When you look into the life of Isaac, he was a child of happiness. He was also a child promised to Abraham and Sarah, when they thought they would never have children; he was they're miracle.

And this is what he promised us—eternal life.
1 John 2:25
