Today's Verse : Galatians 6:16


June 16, 2012

... what counts is a new creation. Peace and mercy to all who
follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.
-- Galatians 6:16

Paul ends his breathtaking letter to Galatians with this
incredible reminder: both Jews and Gentiles who are justified by
faith in Jesus Christ are God's people, his Israel. Like Abraham
who left on a long journey trusting in God's promise, so also all
who are spiritual Israel follow God's lead and cling to God's
promise through faith in Jesus Christ. Like those who were
delivered in the Exodus by the power of God and with the sprinkled
blood of the Passover lamb, God's people today have been
blood-bought and delivered from their bondage to sin and death.
Here there is neither Jew nor Gentile, slave nor free, male nor
female, because in Israel, we are God's people and the recipients
of his mercy and his peace.

El Shaddai, LORD of the Covenant, thank you for our great
Patriarchs of faith who kept the faith and trusted in your Promise.
Thank you for fulfilling your Promise in Jesus. Thank you for
blessing me and including me as one of your children. Now may we,
your people, bring you praise, in the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
