As Christians we are the new “Israel” in that we are a nation founded in Jesus Christ, brought into the Kingdom of God by grace. However, there is still a place in God’s heart for people from which Jesus had earthy lineage, the children of Israel. So, we need to have a realistic view of God’s embracing love. It is not just for us, but for all, and his salvation is open to all who will continue in his kindness by embracing his grace. We do not support the root, the root supports us.
