As He says also in Hosea: I will call them My people, who were not My people, And her beloved, who was not beloved. And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, You are not My people, There they shall be called sons of the living God. Romans 9:25-26 NKJV
God was speaking to His people. They rejected His love. They rebelled against Him. They served and worshiped false gods. They set their desire on ungodly idols.
God is speaking to us. He is speaking to people who rejected His love. People living in rebellion against Him. He is speaking to people who worship false gods and idols today.
God was declaring His unconditional love for the nation of Israel. He is declaring His unconditional love for people living upon the earth today. God loves all people. The Lord created us to be loved by Him. Almighty God created us to love and adore Jesus.
People who have received the salvation of the Lord did not do anything to deserve God’s forgiveness. We did not earn God’s love and mercy any more than the children Israel did. Salvation is a gift of God not a reward we could do anything to earn.
Jesus is going to save untold numbers of people before He returns to the earth for us!
Jesus is going to do great and mighty things before He returns. We will see great signs and wonders. The greatest miracles of God will be in the lives of men and women who humble themselves before the Lord of glory!
People who were not previously the people of God will be called children of the living God. People who were not the beloved of God will be called His beloved. Men and women who were in bondage will be set free to live and abundant life of faith in Jesus!
No all people will be saved. Many will harden their hearts against Jesus. Do not be one of them!
God is merciful. He is longsuffering. Jesus is going to save people right before our eyes as we walk in faith and obedience to the Lord!
Jesus saved us as a witness and testimony to people who are perishing. Jesus saved us so we can be His witnesses and give testimony to His goodness mercy and love.
Jesus wants us to believe He can and will save even the most undeserving and lost people of our generation. Jesus wants us to believe Him for even greater and mightier works than we have yet seen.
Jesus wants you to step out in faith today. Jesus can use you to transform people’s lives and eternal destinies!
Will you trust Jesus today? Will you trust Him enough to step out in faith? Will you be counted among the beloved of God who are called by Jesus’ mighty name today?
