January 20: God’s unique relationship with Israel and with the nations

Then Paul does answer the question. His answer reveals his background and understanding of the Hebrew Bible. It also shows us that the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is one book. God’s plan always included the Gentiles.

Hosea 2:23

Then I will sow her for Myself in the earth,

And I will have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy;

Then I will say to those who were not My people,

‘You are My people!’

And they shall say, ‘You are my God!’”

Romans 9:25 

As He says also in Hosea:

“I will call them My people, who were not My people,

And her beloved, who was not beloved.”

PRAISE GOD FOR HIS LOVE FOR JEWS AND GENTILES
