Not all who descend from Israel are Your people. Your children are not based on genealogical conditions, but rather Your promise through faith. Being Your child doe snot depend on human means, but rather Your mercy. Your mercy has given me faith—You chose to adopt me as Your child. You have moulded me into the man [woman] I am today, and will later become. In the hands of the Almighty God, You could crush me for my iniquities. Instead, You shape and mould me for Your glory. You promised to call people who are not Yours Your people. I was not included in this number, and You called me Your own by gifting me with faith. Christ is a stumbling stone for unbelievers, but You are my cornerstone. I will, therefore, praise You till the end of my days.
