10 March 2013 - Galatians 6: 16

Sunday, March 10

All those who will walk orderly by this rule of conduct, upon them be peace and mercy, even upon the Israel of God. — Gal. 6:16

Jehovah’s purpose with regard to “the Israel of God” is being fulfilled in a marvelous way. As Paul said, “all Israel will be saved.” (Rom. 11:26) In Jehovah’s due time, “all Israel”—that is, the complete number of spiritual Israelites—will serve as kings and priests in heaven. Nothing can cause Jehovah’s purpose to fail! As foretold, Abraham’s seed—Jesus Christ along with the 144,000—will bring blessings to “people of the nations.” (Rom. 11:12; Gen. 22:18) In this way, all of God’s people benefit from this arrangement. Truly, as we contemplate the outworking of Jehovah’s eternal purpose, we cannot help but be amazed at “the depth of God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge.” — Rom. 11:33 w11 5/15 4:19, 20
