Daily Fountain Devotional 7 September 2022 MESSAGE
In our text today, St. Paul expressed so much pain for the sake of his brethren – the Jews – who found it difficult to embrace the salvation in Christ as a result of their claim to be the seed of Abraham.
Having been sent by the Lord as an Apostle to the Gentiles (the engrafted branch), he experienced their turning to the Lord by faith and received the grace of salvation therein, while the children of Abraham upon whom the promise was given, remained outside the faith. He therefore reiterated that God shows mercy to whoever He wills without allowing scrutiny by mortal men.
This mercy does not necessarily come by works, but as it pleases God. St. Paul’s burden to see his brethren being carved back into God’s fold as it were, is a great lesson to every Christian. He wished he could be “accursed from Christ” if that is the only condition that could help his brethren.
As a Christian, what feelings do you have for your brethren and kinsmen who are yet to embrace Christ as their Lord and personal Saviour? Is there anything you can do to help them see the light in Christ? Now is the time.
PRAYER: Father, create in me the burden to bring my kinsmen to the knowledge of Christ.
