A special thank you to Tom Atwood of The Hebrew Scriptures Bible Society for being our guest speaker today (March 8). The apostle Paul stated in Romans 10:1 that it was his heart’s desire and prayer to God concerning them (meaning Israel) is for their salvation! As the Lord had compassion for the Nation of Israel, so are we to have the same for God’s chosen people. Just as God promised Abram (Abraham) that his descendants would be a great nation (Genesis 12:1-3), we are to make sure, as we are able, to proclaim the truth of the Gospel in order that those who receive it will truly know Jesus Christ and the complete testimony of God meant for them. Only then will the Jews will be truly set apart as a people (Jeremiah 24:7). While many Jews rely only upon the Old Testament, Hebrews 8 and 9 speaks of the new covenant when referring back to the prophet Jeremiah (31:31-34) that Jesus is the fulfillment of God’s covenant with Israel. I pray that God’s desire to reach the Jewish people with this truth will also be our heart’s desire. As members of the Body of Christ, we are His agents that proclaim the Gospel to all people, and especially the Jewish people. Romans 1:16-17 notes “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. For in it God’s righteousness is revealed from faith to faith, just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith (Habakkuk 2:4).
