    Grafted In
    This text shows Paul's concern for the unbelieving Jews he was ministering to.  Although physical Israel rejected Christ, it will and has led to the salvation of the people of many nations.  It has been beneficial to us as Christians because the Gospel has gone out to the nations as a part of God's plan and is used as righteous jealousy to wake up the Jews to Jesus being the Messiah.  Paul wants people to see what they have that they took for granted, such as being a part of the covenant community. 
     
    While they will not be fully restored, God is not done with Israel in the sense that many will be saved through Jesus Christ.  As we see today and throughout history, Jews have been disproportionately despised, and as Christians, we are not to be arrogant toward them.  While they are not to be considered de facto Christians and need the Savior, we have much common ground in the 39 books of the Old Testament, and we need to make them jealous for Christ by living faithfully and showing them the Messiah with love, patience, and humility.

    The Remnant
    Being born into a Christian family or having been descended from a Jewish community has many benefits, but it does not mean that one is saved.  Paul was the "perfect" Jew in every way, but that did not save him; instead, it was his faith in Jesus Christ alone that transformed his life.  Many people who are merely religious or profess to be believers will reject the faith, compromise the gospel, affirm sin, and eventually leave altogether, demonstrating that they never truly believed in one true gospel in the first place.  But amid widespread rebellion and throughout history, God has always kept his remnant as a witness to the nations, as soldiers in his army, so that he might show his power through them.  We need to guard against remaining only in our Christian huddles and be instruments in the hand of our Redeemer to an unbelieving world.

    What About Israel?
    Has God forgotten about Israel?  In these verses, there is underlying tension as Paul is speaking to the ethnic Jews, whom God has used throughout history as a part of God's unfolding redemptive plan.  Ethnic Israel rejected the Messiah, and many of the laws, ceremonies, and traditions that the Jews held pointed to and were fulfilled by Jesus Christ and his work on the cross.  With that said, God has not absolutely rejected all Jews, and Paul himself, as a Jew, was an example of this.  He was seen persecuting the church and not seeking salvation in Jesus Christ alone, but God saw fit to invade Paul's life and call him to himself, and he will do the same to a multitude in the future.  We must come alongside Israel and preach the Gospel as we must to all others.

    Everyone Who Calls
    Salvation is not for one particular group of ethnic people. It's for all sinners and for all time. We've sinned against God our creator and God alone, and it's to him that we must be reconciled to, not nature or some other person or being.  Only Jesus could do for us that which we could never do for ourselves, and when we truly trust in him alone, lives and cultures are changed.

    The Blessed King Eternal
    Series: (All)
    The language of Psalm 72 is fit for an eternal king. While King Solomon's reign produced blessings for those under his rule, his short reign as king was only a foretaste of the eternal blessing bestowed upon the servants of Christ's eternal kingdom. Christ is the king who reigns eternal, and his blessing extends to all ends of his kingdom and will not end. 
    Scripture: Psalm 72

    No Shame
    When God lifts the restraints on a godless world, and sin abounds, there is no shame when there ought to be. Sinful behavior is normalized, a sign of man’s arrogance, selfishness, rebellion, and deep fallen nature.
    The world will seek to shame those who hold to Christian convictions and hold to what the Bible teaches into silence or embrace the lie that what we believe is shameful, bigoted, old-fashioned, etc. This is all done to justify their own sin. As Christians, we are reminded that there is no shame for those in Jesus Christ, and we are called to live our faith and the truth of Scripture unashamedly and with boldness and love.
