The passage Romans 11:17-24 explains the root and natural branches. The root is God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The natural braches are the people of Israel who were rejected because they had not accepted the Gospel message. Explained is that the branches were broken but olive shoots (Gentiles) were grafted in and now share in the nourishment of the root (v. 17).
The rejection of Israel would not be final for both the Gentiles and Jews would share in the tree’s nourishment based on faith in God. Over time the natural branches would flourish once again. In the meantime, those grafted in should have the attitude of humility and faith. They should have a positive attitude towards their part in God’s overall plan.
The past is done but the present and future is still being worked out so share about why this day is amazing and why it will be amazing tomorrow. As a believer, let us all share from the same nourishing food for the soul that not only improves our life but also the lives of those around us.
This day with You Lord, we have all we need for an amazing future. By accepting Christ as Savior, things will only get better because we have been given the principles taught by Jesus and are willing to follow. Your Word Lord is a map for our journey and the Spirit Guides our steps. We are grateful to be able to receive the nourishment needed to flourish. Amen.
