September 15: God’s unique relationship with Israel

Today some Christians, churches and even nations have turned against Israel and thus denying God’s unique relationship with her.

God’s love for Israel was based on His love for their patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob).

While that relationship comes with great privilege, it also comes with great responsibility.

Deuteronomy 10:14-22

The Message

Look around you: Everything you see is God’s—the heavens above and beyond, the Earth, and everything on it. But it was your ancestors who God fell in love with; he picked their children—that’s you!—out of all the other peoples. That’s where we are right now. So cut away the thick calluses from your heart and stop being so willfully hardheaded. God, your God, is the God of all gods, he’s the Master of all masters, a God immense and powerful and awesome. He doesn’t play favorites, takes no bribes, makes sure orphans and widows are treated fairly, takes loving care of foreigners by seeing that they get food and clothing.

You must treat foreigners with the same loving care—

        Remember, you were once foreigners in Egypt.

    Reverently respect God, your God, serve him, hold tight to him,

        Back up your promises with the authority of his name.

    He’s your praise! He’s your God!

    He did all these tremendous, these staggering things

        That you saw with your own eyes.

When your ancestors entered Egypt, they numbered a mere seventy souls. And now look at you—you look more like the stars in the night skies in number. And your God did it.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO FINALLY ACCEPT BOTH THE PRIVILEGE AND RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE.
