DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Rejection of Israel Not Total
Judging by the number of Jews that reject Jesus as the Messiah, one is tempted to conclude that all Jews are to be written off as far as salvation is concerned. The fact is that not all Jews are lost; their rejection is not total even though they rejected Jesus. From generation to generation God has always preserved some who will accept and stand by the truth. In Elijah’s time, he could only see himself alone standing against Jezebel. He, therefore, concluded that no one else besides him was on the Lord’s side. It must have been a great surprise for him to hear that God had seven thousand men still loyal to Him. When you seem to be all alone standing for the truth or the gospel, do not get discouraged. In every generation, there will always be those who will never bow their knees to the idols. Do not be tempted that God will overlook sin because everyone around you has fallen. No matter how much the society has derailed morally, there will always be some who cling to righteousness.
Point of Emphasis: God will always have some people in each generation who will be faithful to Him.
Prayer Point: Father, count me worthy to be among the few who will keep standing for You.
