What is the fruit of knowing God and being in covenant with him?
God always intended to use Israel to be both an example and a conduit of blessing for the whole world – people from every race, culture and religion. What he gave Israel is what all nations need: moral clarity (justice), the rule of law (not dictators) and life to the fullest (spiritual, as well as physical and property rights).
God has a mega vision but he’s not megalomaniac. He is meticulous when it comes to details, but not a perfectionist and pedantic.
He’s pragmatic but not slave to it. He knows how to put a gold coin in the mouth of a fish, but also to give tent making skills to his apostle Paul.
Read the verse below. God wants Israel to bud and to blossom and fill all the world with Kingdom fruit. Hey, that’s us! I bet the world didn’t tell you that, did they? No, I didn’t think so. They never will. They don’t see Jesus in you. The world only see what it can control – your flesh, your natural features.
But you and I are so much more than that! We can be all things through Christ who gives us strength!
“In days to come Jacob will take root,
Israel will bud and blossom
and fill all the world with fruit.”
