For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29 NKJV
The Jewish people rejected the gospel. Their rejection of the gospel is part of God’s perfect plan. God will eventually bring the Nation of Israel to salvation. Why would God want them to reject the gospel? Why would God save them if they rejected the gospel?
We were all blinded to the gospel. We have all disobeyed God at one time or another.
God will show mercy to whom He will show mercy. God will do what He wants with or without us understanding what He is doing and why He is doing it. That is the key that unlocks the mysterious things of God. Jesus is God. Jesus can do whatever He wants.
Everything God does is just. Everything God does is correct. No one can oppose Jesus!
You and I sin stumble fail and fall. The Lord is still able to carry out His good and perfect plan for our lives.
Jesus did not save you so He could put another notch on His belt. Jesus did not save you because there was an empty page in the Lamb’s book of life. Jesus saved you from death and damnation for eternal life with Him. Jesus saved you to serve Him!
In God’s presence our joy will be complete and unending. We will need new bodies because our present bodies cannot contain the joy God has in store for people who love Him today!
When God uses you to share the gospel with someone or pray for someone who is healed do you take the credit for it? Of course not. You cannot save or heal anyone. It is Jesus using you to accomplish His good and perfect will in other people’s lives.
This is a verse of scripture many of us may not be comfortable with. We want to give ourselves a pat on the back when God works in our lives. We want to disqualify other people from serving God when they do not live up to our expectations.
This verse is not an excuse to sin. We should not live like the devil Monday through Saturday and act like a saint on Sunday.
If you have stumbled and fallen in your walk with the Lord get back up and follow Him today. If you have turned your back on the Lord turn back to Him today. Trust Jesus to put you back on the path He has chosen for you.
Jesus can bring you back into His perfect will for your life today. Trust Jesus with your life. Trust Him with your ministry. The spiritual gifts God gave you and His calling on your life are irrevocable!
Jesus is the way the truth and the life! Jesus makes a way for us through the perils and pitfalls of life in a fallen world. Jesus is the way to live in peace today and blessed perfection throughout eternity! Jesus is the King of creation. Serve Him today!
