Saturday of Week 30 – Rom 11:1-2,11-12,25-29; Psalm 93; Luke 14:1,7-11
Is it possible the God has rejected his people?
They were rejected. That can be seen. God abandoned them. There’s clear evidence for this. We’re better . . . . Whoa, slow down, one step at a time!
God never takes back his gifts – recalls Saint Paul. Of course, the Chosen People are against God since they are against the Gospel, but God is not against them. He did not stop loving.
God never takes back his gifts. . . . Baptism is never taken back. For God you are always chosen. Whatever I do to Him, however far I go from Him, God does not turn away. Priesthood can never be taken back. No infidelity can erase the mark of ordination.
Life can also never be taken back. It will never be withdrawn. My body will die, but my soul will never die. God’s love given with life will never be taken back.
Before anyone says “they were rejected” it would be better to first listen to: everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the man who humbles himself will be exalted.
