The followers and servants of Jesus Christ are blessed through Abraham.  This includes all of us who are Christians.

Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude—innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.  (Heb 11:12 NKJV)  This verse is referring to Abraham, known as the “father of faith” and honored for his obedience to God.

I will multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven and will give to your offspring all these lands. And in your offspring all the nations of the earth shall be blessed . . . (Gen 26:4 NIV)  The Lord is speaking to Abraham in this verse.

Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be like the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or numbered. And in the place where it was said to them, “You are not my people,” it shall be said to them, “Children of the living God.”  (Hos 1:10 NIV)  All who believe in Jesus Christ are considered to be spiritual children (offspring) of Abraham.

You also multiplied their children as the stars of heaven and brought them into the land
which You had told their fathers to go in and possess.
  (Neh 9:23 NKJV)  God has fulfilled His many promises to multiply the descendants of Abraham exponentially.

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.  (Gal 3:13-14 NKJV)  Every promise of blessing that was given to Abraham belongs to every follower of Jesus Christ.  Christians are redeemed from every curse through Jesus.

Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham.  (Gal 3:7 NIV)  Those of us who have active faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord are called by the Lord “children of Abraham.”  Yes, we are blessed!
