Don’t Let This Happen to You

Don’t Let This Happen to You

Read: Romans 11

God never removes His call from us or His ability in us.

Throughout the Bible, God brings ordinary people into divine service. He works through people who are close to Him to reveal Himself to those who are far from Him. Not only does God work through individuals, he also works through groups.

God chose Israel to receive His blessing and carry His salvation to the world (Genesis 12:1-3). Unfortunately, the nation stopped serving God wholeheartedly and started going through the motions. The majority of Jewish people refused to see Jesus as the Messiah. Their blindness, however, was part of God’s grand plan. Although Jesus’ followers were were labeled as heretics and dispersed, God worked through them to take the good news of Jesus’ resurrection to non-Jews around the world.

Are the Jews finished? No way! They got off track, but no one is beyond restoration. God never removes His call from us or His ability in us. Romans 11:29 reminds us, “the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”

The promises God made to and about Israel will eventually come to pass, and the same is true for each of us. Ephesians 4:1 tells us every believer in Jesus has a divine purpose. Like the Jews, we can start off committed to serving God, but as time goes on get distracted and pursue our own goals. We may walk away from serving God, but our purpose remains. It stands there waiting for us to return.
