Are you an Israelite?
At the end of his letter to the Galatian believers the Apostle Paul pronounces a blessing upon ‘the Israel of God’. You would well be forgiven for thinking ‘that’s great for them but what’s that got to do with me?’
More than you might realise...It seems pretty clear that the great apostle was not speaking of ethnic Israelites but about Jesus Christ’s New Covenant people- the Church made up of believing Gentiles and Jews.
The blessed truth is that every person, no matter how unjewish they might be- and us Irish must be at the top of that list!- if they repent and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation, they become part of God’s special elect people who will inherit not just a land but the whole earth!
That’s a destiny worth having!!
