In all things: the purpose of God stands.
The earth is the Lord’s and everything, and all who live in it (Psalm 24:1). Jesus Christ came to His own people, but they did not receive Him. His ministry among the Jews was not received or accepted. They rejected Him and this made their sin even more sinful. Israel was His inheritance:
“From the care of the ewes with suckling lambs He brought him To shepherd Jacob His people, And Israel His inheritance.”
Yet there were those who received Him!
Though Christ was rejected by His own people, it did not stop God’s plan and purpose from going ahead. God’s plan still stands.
As many as believe on Christ and acknowledge Him as the Messiah, have the right to become the children of God. Those who believed in His name, whosoever and whatsoever receive Him (whether Pharisee, Sadducee, learned or unlearned, male or female, Jew or Gentile) are privileged to be the sons of God.
By faith in Christ many are adopted into God’s family (Gal.3:26). Those who believe in the Son of God are the children of God. With out faith in His Son, you cannot be His child. The children of God have been given the right to become the children of God. They have sonship, they are God’s children.
God’s plans and purposes for this earth can never be defeated (Prov. 19:21; Isa. 46:9-11, John 6:37-39). Through faith in Jesus Christ we have a wonderful inheritance. It is God’s gift of free love and free grace. There are a chosen generation of people, foreknown, predestined, called, justified and glorified (Rom. 8:29).
