“In the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,” there they will be called ‘Children of the Living God.’” Romans 9:26
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called ‘Children of God!’ And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful Light. Once you were NOT a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had NOT received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10
God’s plan is to draw out of the GENTILE NATIONS those who will respond POSITIVELY to His invitation to become CHILDREN of the LIVING GOD. And there will also be a REMNANT of the JEWS, who will respond POSTIVELY to this same invitation, they too will be KNOWN as the CHILDREN of the LIVING GOD, because of their relationship with Jesus Christ, as their SAVIOR and LORD.
This is POSSIBLE because of God’s GREAT LOVE that He has LAVISHED on us. We, who are Gentile believers, and the REMNANT of Jews, (Messianic Jews), who have ACCEPTED Christ as their SAVIOR and LORD, are known as “the Church”. And we are called the “CHILDREN of God!”
The Gentile Believers and the Messianic Jews, are a CHOSEN PEOPLE, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, GOD’S SPECIAL POSSESSION. Therefore, we SHOULD DECLARE the praises of the ONE who has called us out of the DARKNESS and into His WONDERFUL LIGHT. In our LOST condition we were without MERCY, but NOW we have God’s ABUNDANT MERCY, and it’s offered to EVERY HUMAN BEING. Have YOU received His MERCY? ONLY those who have ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST as their SAVIOR and LORD, will be able to spend ALL of ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God by: TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then you are headed to an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and become a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
