There it is! I've been expecting to hear the part in Ch. 11 today...about the olive tree. So merciful is out God for grafting us in by Grace, into the true olive tree. Israel by disobedience.. by unbelief.. was grafted out that we be grafted in. Then verse 20b-21: Do not be haughty but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. Just like in Hebrews, it says, in Ch 3,verse 8, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the days of trial in the wilderness ...and verse 12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God. It is very important that we, as we continue to grow up in the LORD, that we hold fast our faith! That we believe that God is who He says He is! That He will do what He says He will do! We are who He says we are, and we can do all things through Christ! The Word is alive and active in us! We believe You God!!! Here again, I see why He says that we are to provoke one another to good works...seeing that the Day is approaching...:) Aunt Teddi
Amen Aunt Teddi! :) ~Sarah
