“And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: ‘Though the number of sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will be saved,…”
Paul begins a quote here from Isaiah 10:22-23. He is addressing that fact that the prophet prophesied centuries earlier that only a remnant of Israel would receive salvation. Not all Jews would be saved. Most of Israel was judged.
Israel deserved to be wiped from the face of the earth because of its sins. So do you and I. If it were not for God’s rich grace and mercy, all of us would be eternally condemned.
That’s why God sent his Son, Jesus, to rescue us from our sin. He came to forgive all our iniquities and give us eternal life.
It is the most precious gift God could give us. Have you received it today? It can only be received by grace through faith. It’s available to you.
Will you now receive it?
