God's Mercy Extends To All

Romans 11:32 “For God has consigned all to disobedience, that He might show mercy to all.”

In several chapters before Romans 11, Paul gives us a history lesson covering Israel’s rejection of the coming Messiah. But GOD knew this was going to happen. He revealed this fact to several Old Testament prophets and told them to preach that message to Nation Israel. Their righteousness was based on their faith in obedience to the Law of Moses. So their rejection was not surprising. Their rejection was their disobedience, not to the Law, but to GOD Himself. Bringing these thoughts back to verse 32, GOD’S mercy extends to all who are disobedient. Jew and Gentile alike are disobedient and can be brought into GOD’S family on equal footing. Mercy and Grace for all who believe, the Chosen (Israel) and the Adopted (Gentiles). Praises and Glory to Our Heavenly Father! Mike
