That Israel Might Be Saved

That Israel Might Be Saved

Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
Romans 10:1

Recently, I have been visiting a Messianic church in addition to attending my regular church. Messianic churches usually cater to Jewish people who have trusted in Jesus (or Yeshua in Hebrew) as their Savior and Lord. The church I visit also has many people who don’t come from a Jewish background (called Gentiles). Each week, the church prays for the Jewish people that they might know the true Messiah.

God promised Israel that a Messiah would come. We, as believers, know He fulfilled this promise in Jesus Christ. Jesus’ first disciples were all Jewish. But when many Jews rejected Jesus as the true Messiah, His message began to spread among the Gentiles. Today, many Jews have trusted in Jesus as their Savior (they often refer to themselves as Messianic Jews). However, most of the Jewish people have rejected Jesus and are still waiting for a Messiah that has already come.

God is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). This includes the Jewish people. God never broke His promise to Israel. He kept His covenant with them, but He is now pointing them to a “better covenant” (Hebrews 8:6). God’s heart desire is that the Jewish people trust in His Son.

Like Paul, we should pray that Israel might be saved. Most have rejected His Son, but He has not rejected them. He loves them and desires to have a relationship with them. He calls us to pray for them and share with them about how He has transformed our lives. May we all trust in the true Messiah and worship Him with all our hearts.

I say Amen! A word concerning Israel. Romans 11:31-even so these (Israel) have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. (32) For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all. NKJV James 2:12:Mercy triumphs over judgment. To that I say, praise the Lord.
