About Pursued by Love Series
Love is a force that is not stoppable or predictable. Love is unquenchable. The only thing you can do to Love is…miss it.
Ours is a Jewish Bible, with a Jewish Savior. The early church, the first believers, were all Jewish. The disciples we follow, including Paul the great author, all were Jewish. We are a branch grafted to a Jewish root. We are the descendants of the father of Israel, Abraham.
If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.
Galatians 3:29 NASB
The stories of Israel are our stories. And the promises to Israel are our promises and our promises are theirs, too.
Our identity in God, as He carefully arranged it, is eternally linked to Israel. Our Heavenly Father is building a family inexorably bound by One God. Israel is our sister and brother for whom we long with a deep love buried in every redeemed spirit.
