March 12: Redemption and salvation

As God’s chose and protected a remnant in Elijah’s day, so He continues to do amid and despite the moral decay and rebellion of the nation. God’s loving purposes are not defeated by people’s hard hearts. *

As Paul points out again and again, God’s choice is the affect of His grace, not man’s works unto righteousness.

*Cambridge Greek Testament

Romans 11:5-6

Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.

PRAISE GOD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS TO HIS WORD TO ISRAEL

Shalom
