Rom. 2:29 No, a true Jew is one whose heart is right with God. And true circumcision is not a cutting of the body but a change of heart produced by God's Spirit. Whoever has that kind of change seeks praise from God.

All throughout the Scriptures we see God's special love and favor upon the Jewish people. It all began with Abraham who was found to be righteous in God's eyes because he believed and trusted in God without reservation. God honored the heart of Abraham by promising him that his descendants would inherit the Promised Land and would be so great in number that they could not be counted.

Although God made it clear that His promise was to be kept through the nation of Israel, we discover that this promise was not confined to the Jewish people. God's promise of blessing is for all whose heart is right with God. All who know Jesus as Savior are part of the fellowship of God that He had with the Jews. For in God's eyes, a Jew is one whose heart has been made righteous by the shed blood of Christ at Calvary. God promises are for all who are His children.

No one is excluded from God's promises and blessings whose heart has been changed by God's Spirit at Calvary. We are an anthem of praise that ascends unto God. His glory is seen in all who are His. He takes delight in His children and they are a living testimony of God's grace and mercy for all to see.
