I was reading this morning in Matthew 15, and found myself in verses 30-31. “And great multitudes came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, dumb, and many others … and He healed them … and they glorified the God of Israel.”
Those last four words caught my attention, and I began thinking about how the Christians in other parts of the world — especially the United States — tend to forget that it is truly The God of Israel who has created us and blessed us so abundantly. We need to be especially conscious of that fact in the midst of the present world circumstances. As Americans particularly, we need to re-evaluate how we see, think about, and treat the nation of Israel.
I’m calling on all of the citizens of the U. S. specifically to do just that. It was The God of Israel who established the United States of American and blessed it with such bounty for all of us — and made it possible for us to bless so many other peoples in the world from that bounty as well. May we never forget to be grateful to Him and to show our gratitude by always supporting and blessing His first nation — ISRAEL.
