A Promise for the Nations

    This prophecy that Jesus should die for the entire nation

    came from Caiaphas in his position as high priest. He didn’t

    think of it himself; he was inspired to say it. It was a

    prediction that Jesus’ death would be not for Israel only,

    but for the gathering together of all the children of God

    scattered around the world. So from that time on the Jewish

    leaders began to plot Jesus’ death.

                             — John 11:51-53 (NLT)


God can even use those who oppose him to declare his grace. His plan

was to save his people, Israel, and also reach the non-Jewish nations

of the world through Jesus. We should remember that grace triumphs! God

will not be deterred. His will is going to triumph. His glory will be

declared even by those who have opposed Him. That is the power of the

Gospel and the God who authored it!


Thank you, dear Father, that grace is for all peoples of the earth.

Please bless my brothers and sisters in Christ all over the world,

especially those who live their faith in hostile situations. Please

spread the power of the Gospel throughout the world in this generation.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
