Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision? Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? By no means! Let God be true though everyone were a liar, as it is written, “That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you are judged.” Romans 3:1-4
Is God done with the Jews? Of course not. When God makes a promise He keeps it. I remember a few years ago when many Christians were talking about Christians taking the favored place as God’s people. Christians are God’s people but we are grafted onto the family. It was through the Jews that we become part of the family. And yes, Jews have once again rejected God’s plan and have refused to recognize His Messiah.
Still God has not rejected His people. He waits patiently for them to come back to him. We see this throughout history. Israel turns from God. They go through exile and punishment and turn back the God only to do it all over again. God always take them back. God never turns away the repentant believer. God never breaks His promise. Nothing we can do will negate God’s plan or His promise.
God chose Abraham to bring salvation to the world through his linage. As history unfolded we see the Jewish nation established, sent into exile and reestablished only to repeat. Once again Israel is a nation. God has not forgotten His people. He has only established a way for the Gentile to become His people. Jesus came first to the Jew but He always intended to come also to the rest of the world.
God is always faithful to keep His promises. It may seem like a long time to us but to God it has already happened. He gives each of us the time we need to make a decision, a decision to repent and come to Him. First to the Jew and then to the Gentile. God loves us all and wishes none to perish.
Have a blessed day,
