"For the promise that He would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but the righteousness of faith." (Romans 4:13)
When God promised Abraham that he would have a son and God would establish a covenant with him and his descendants, he wasn't just referring to the physical descendants, the Jews. God was talking about us, the gentiles, anyone in the world regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, and gender who is willing to be adopted as God's spiritual child. The promise, Jesus Christ and the salvation He brings to us, is ours if we will receive it!
