Today's Scripture: "And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flockĀ andĀ one shepherd."Jn 10:16

See it.

Better late?

Live it.


I have nothing against Jewish people but I am glad they rejected God's Son as Lord and Messiah 2,000 years ago. I believe from the foundation of the world God intended for all men to benefit from the sacrificial death of Jesus at Calvary. The offer of redemption was made to his own people first, but when they rejected it, we Gentiles were given the opportunity they forfeited. In other words, their loss is our gain. The last became the first, the first, the last.

Today, salvation is afforded everyone regardless of their religion, race or creed. Even though the Jews rejected Jesus when He came, untold numbers of Jewish people know God today through Jesus Christ. Their religion of Judaism represents how God revealed Himself to the Israelite people, but now it is fulfilled through the shed blood of Jesus. Judaism that recognized Jehovah void of the Lamb of God is impotent. Jesus is the Way, the only way to God.

Pray it.

You, Jesus, are Lord, Almighty God and worthy of our praise.
