Romans 5:6-8

For Christ,
while we were still helpless,
died at the appointed time for the ungodly.
Indeed, only with difficulty
does one die for a just person,
though perhaps for a good person
one might even find courage to die.
But God proves his love for us
in that while we were still sinners
Christ died for us.

John 4:13-14

Jesus replied:
Whoever drinks this water will be thirsty again;
but no one who drinks the water that I shall give
will ever be thirsty again:
the water that I shall give
will become a spring of water within,
welling up for eternal life.

  1. What a wonderful, mysterious, and immeasurable gift of grace that has been given to us! Alleluiah!

     
  2. Thank you Dr. E. for reminding us once more about our precious gift from our Father.

     
  3. The blessing is mine totally………there is nothing better than the gift of sharing 🙂

     
  4. He came for the “lost sheep of Israel.” When Jesus walked among the Jews there was a “middle wall of partition” still in place. Gentiles stood on one side with out God and the Jews stood on the other side.with God. Israel was in a serious state of apostasy when Jesus came on the scene and he was there to point out that apostasy and to give them corrective doctrine. Gentiles were “dogs” and only worthy of the crumbs that fell from the Jewish table. The “middle wall of partition” did not come down until the stoning of Stephen in Acts 7 with Israel committing the unpardonable sin, the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. The only way a Gentile could be saved was through Israel.

     
    • No. Jesus the Christ came for ALL sinners. And that means Jews, Gentiles, you and me.

       
    • The only way a Gentile could be saved was through Israel.

      Oh, really?

      It appears my version of the Bible left that part out.

      The only way anyone, Jew or Gentile, can be saved is through Jesus, the Jewish Messiah.

      “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

      Tony, I don’t know why you are going off-topic on such a straight forward message of hope, taken directly from scripture. You are coming off sounding a bit trollish. If that is your intention, your comments won’t be well received on FOTM. Unlike Fox News, we are NOT fair and balanced, just truthful.

       
    • False teaching. The middle wall of partition came down the moment Jesus paid the price of our sins on the cross. It took the jewish believers a little while to realize this had happened, but the moment was the death of Christ, the Lamb of God.

       
    • Israel committed the unpardonable sin when stoning Stephen? If that is so, then explain the conversion of Saul (St. Paul), who was holding the coats of those throwing stones, and approving. And explain Stephen asking God to forgive them.
