Pastor's Thought for the Day

Romans 10:1-2, CEB
Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire is for Israel’s salvation. That’s my prayer to God for them. 2 I can vouch for them: they are enthusiastic about God. However, it isn’t informed by knowledge.
There are many devout people in the world who are lost. There are even many good people in the world who are lost (some of the devout are not good people!). Paul argues strongly that not all religions are the same, and that salvation only comes through receiving the grace of salvation through faith in Jesus the Son of God. If one rejects the truth of the Gospel, how can one expect to receive its benefits? We have a gift to share with others!
