July 6 – Jesus Is For Jews and Gentiles

Daily Bible Life

Jews who denied Jesus Christ as the true messiah may still have an opportunity to receive his salvation again. The fact that they initially rejected Christ have successfully opened the door of salvation for non-Jews who would believe. Hostility and persecutions that early Christians suffered from Jews forced them out of comfort zones to preach to the gentiles. They extended their gospel evangelization to people who were not traditional Jews. However, God would not cast off Jews forever, Paul said, “If by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? For if the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you. You will say then, “Branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.” Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either” (Romans 11: 14-21).

 

Lesson:

God loves the Jews; he raised them from a few people, and turned them into a great nation. However, the Jews are not God’s children, Christians are his children also. Both the Jews and Christians are like branches of the same tree grafted to God. However, the Jews cannot survive in isolation, they need the salvation of Jesus Christ to offer acceptable service to God. The scripture stated that God would not give up on Israel, but he would enlighten their mind to accept Jesus Christ as the true Messiah of God (Yeshua Ha-Mashiach). With faith in Jesus Christ, both Jews and Christians will partake in the Lord’s Passover in heaven. Hence, since Jesus Christ is so important to salvation, everyone, Jews and non-Jews should consider it necessary to believe in him.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, I pray for Jews and all people who have not believed Jesus Christ as the true Messiah to do so. Please enlighten their minds to understand the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on their behalf. Let them understand that Jesus Christ died and resurrected to give them eternal life, so that they can inherit your kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
