“For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?” (Romans 11:31)
For all who believe, there is life regardless their position in life. The simple truth is that Jesus came into the world to save as many as would believe. Although the descendants of Abraham initially rejected the Gospel, yet there are those from every tribe, tongue and nation who have accepted the truth that Christ revealed. Bottom line: are you one who has accepted the truth that Christ alone is the Savior of all who believe?
Lord, the mystery of people’s behavior is often puzzling. Wrapped up in grand ideas, I forget to ask and find the answer for simple questions. Help me, I pray, to turn to You first, know that You are Lord and then pursue what is right, seeking understanding of the greater things. Help me know that only You, who are Lord of all, can reveal all truth and mystery.
Lord, help me do my part today by following You as You lead me through this day. Guide me in Your truth knowing there are those who ought to believe, but won’t – or at least who do not yet believe. Guide me to do my part knowing that all things are in Your hands. May I hold fast to the truth You have given me and do what You give me to do, trusting You above all things. Amen.
