Heavenly Father, thank You that by Your grace I responded to the call to turn from my sin to Jesus, and trust in Him for the forgiveness of my sin. Thank You that despite being rejected by the nation of Israel, there are many Jews who responded to the warning voice of John the Baptist, and have become part of the one New Man in Christ – where there is neither Jew nor Gentile. We look for that day when Christ will return for His Church, and pray for the day when Israel as a nation repents of their sin, turns back to God and acknowledged Jesus as Lord and  King – This we pray in Jesus name, AMEN.
