How is it that you can ‘think’ you have read the entire Bible, and yet new things, information, history and wisdom seem to appear before your eyes on a regular basis?

That is how it was for me, just this weekend, with Romans 9:25 :

I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies;
    I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved.

I am certain that this verse had never before been encountered by my eyes, my heart.

The words are ones spoken as an act of adoption by the god of the Jews, Yahweh. The Jews, always known as “my people” by their God, now had to share their God with the Gentiles. In these words the Gentiles have gone from unloved to beloved.

Our world is full of individuals who believe that they are nobodies, unloved. Perhaps they have even been told that by people who have authority over them, their teacher, their boss, their spouse, their mother, their father. But, God, the Creator of the world, has His arms wide opened, and ready to welcome all as His beloved.

But, Yahweh is not a forceful God. He will not force us to return His love …

we simply need to say, You are my God.

I will say to those called ‘Not my people,’ ‘You are my people’;
    and they will say, ‘You are my God.
Hosea 2:23
