Lord of Jews and Gentiles – Discussion Starters — 1 Comment

  1. We can know that Jesus loves the Gentiles by understanding why and for what purpose He called the Jewish people. They were called to be a “kingdom of priests a holy nation” Ex 19:6, and as priests to be His witnesses Isa. 43:10. The reason Israel was chosen was to serve for that is what priest do.

    Thus Israel was called to serve the spiritual needs of the nations and be God’s witnesses to them. Through them would the Messiah come thus as Jesus put it “salvation is of the Jews” John 4:22. It is this task they were chosen for and called for if you can understand that Father sent His son into the world because He loved them and wished to save them. Then you should be able to understand why God chose Israel. He did not call them to a life of ease, rather a life of hardship. They were not called to be honored but rather despised.

    The nations often look only what is negative and bad in them and rarely what is good. The nations of the world are quick to criticize them but slow to give them any credit. The world is quick to tell lies and half truths about them but slow to tell the truth. They have suffered so much, obviously their calling was not to be honored or live a life of ease and safety, rather they were called to serve, they were called because God loved the nations of this world He chose them to bring His salvation through them in the words of the prophets, apostles, and most of all through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus son of David, son of Israel.
