Re: Daily Devotional; formerly Chaplains Corner
Thank you, guys!
For today, the devotional is a request. First, some scripture;
1 Corinthians 12:12-21 (NCV);
“For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.”
What position does this say the Jews have with God?
And even more concretely,
Romans 11:28-29 (NCV);“The Jews refuse to accept the Good News, so they are God’s enemies. This has happened to help you who are not Jews. But the Jews are still God’s chosen people, and he loves them very much because of the promises he made to their ancestors. God never changes his mind about the people he calls and the things he gives them.”
God loves the Jewish people, and Israel is the land He gave to them!
And the request is – Please, keep the Jewish people in your prayers as they continue their struggle in Israel for the right to EXIST.
Work for and pray for a government that will not support the terrorist nations and desert Israel for a supply of oil.
Pray for the Jews – pray for Israel – and pray for all the people of the world today, that God may restrain his judgment on the world, and allow us more time to reach the lost.
May God bless each one of you -
