Today’s Bible reading is Romans chapter 11
(Read the entire New Testament in 2014 by reading only one chapter each day)
God isn’t finished with His people Israel. One day He will restore them. Today Israel has been placed on a shelf. Through Israel’s failure the Gospel came to the Gentiles. What happened to Israel was part of God’s plan. God is faithful to His people and will keep His promise. As Gentiles we are indebted to Israel and must remain humble . If we reject God we too could be placed on a shelf. Someone once gave me a commemorative pen but it stopped working. I still have the pen but it’s of no use to me. I have it stored in my desk. As believers we must so live and dedicate ourselves to God that He can use us. Our disobedience will lead to God’s judgment, but our obedience will lead to blessing.
Prayer: “Lord, thank You for bringing the Gospel to us. Help us to live in such a way that we can be used by You. In Jesus name. Amen.”
