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, 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.
