GOD IS JEWISH

 
"Theirs were the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the law-giving, the worship, and the promises; theirs were the patriarchs, and from them came the Messiah." —Romans 9:4-5
 

Jesus loves Jews. Jesus chose to be a Jew. Jesus is God (Jn 1:1, 14). Therefore, God is Jewish. If we love God, we must love Jews. We must love Jews so much that we would do anything (Rm 9:3) to lead them to accept Jesus as King of the Jews.

First, we should apologize to Jews for the sins we have committed or let be committed against them. Then we should "pray for the peace of Jerusalem" (Ps 122:6) and care so much for the Jewish people that, like Jesus, we would weep over Jerusalem (Lk 19:41). Jesus wants to gather His Jewish children "together as a mother bird collects her young under her wings" (Lk 13:34).

The Lord has promised: "I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery lest you be conceited; blindness has come upon part of Israel until the full number of Gentiles enter in, and then all Israel will be saved" (Rm 11:25-26).

Love Jesus, the Jew. Love the Jews enough to invite them to accept Jesus as the "King of the Jews" (Jn 19:19).

 
Prayer: Father, may I love, respect, pray for, and witness to the Jews.
Promise: "He took the man, healed him, and sent him on his way." —Lk 14:4
Praise: Norma married a Jewish man who was inspired to embrace the Church after observing her example.
