Our involvement in God's plan
In Galatians chapter 3, Paul also explains how we can be involved in God's plan:
....[God] preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, 'In you all the nations shall be blessed.' So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
Galatians 3 v 8 and 9
It is those who believe and have faith in what God has told us who will be involved in His plan. When we understand and have faith in God's plan, Paul explains what we should do to demonstrate our belief:
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Galatians 3 v 27 to 29

So by being baptized, people from all nations can be involved in the promises that God made to Abraham and his descendants the Jews.
All of us can become involved in the wonderful promises God made to Abraham by:
- learning what God has promised and what He wants us to do
- believing that God will do what He has promised
- being baptized
