The Kindness of God

Today’s reading is Romans 11: 11-24

rootedchristPaul takes his struggling to understand God’s mysteries and now address the Gentiles. They should not feel superior to the Jewish people.  They were not saved because they are better or more holy or have it all figured out.  In fact, if God was not going to save others by their words of the Law, no one should get on their high horse and think that they have a reason to boast.  They should be and remain very humble.  They are an engrafted branch.  And if God will prune branches, that means that no one should think that they have it all figured out and have it all done.

We should all seek to live in the kindness of God.  A God who would reach out to the least, the last, and the lost. A God who is no respecter of persons, a God who loves us not because of our righteousness, but because of His grace.

This section of Romans reminds us of the truth that we should always approach God with humility and mystery.  He is God, and we are not.
