Ultimately, I know that only God can change Israel. He chose Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to start the nation of Israel. God intended that Israel be a light to the nations. In the book of Acts, we see that from chapter 2 to the end of the book, Israel served as a light when the apostles shared the Good News beyond their borders. And today, we have a Bible because of the courage of those 12 disciples who heard the orders of Jesus and obeyed.
Today, we need the church around the world to help us to bring the Good News to Israel. The church does a lot for Israel, yet, the Good News is not being given to my people. Millions of Christians visit Israel every year, but only a handful of them ever have contact with the believers here. Many big churches around the world talk about Israel, but their theology says that there is no need to preach the Good News because they are the “chosen people.” This is an error that stops my people from hearing the Good News.
So, what can be done? Paul says: “I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? May it never be! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make them jealous” (Romans 11:11 NASB). Non-Jews are essential in helping us share the Good News with my people. This “jealousy” that Paul brings is the key that will bring more Jews close to God. Don’t be afraid to share your faith with a Jewish person because it can draw him/her near to God.
We have many needs for people with a call to reach Jewish people. You can be a part of this.
Another way is to pray for our work in Israel and around the world. Pray for more workers, pray for open hearts and open doors, and pray for sufficient funds to accomplish this.
And the easiest way is to give. You can begin right now. Give here. When you help our ministry, workers around the world will be more equipped to do their job and you will be a part of this work as well.
Will you come to Israel to serve? Will you pray for the ministry? Can you give a donation today to assist in bringing the Good News to Jews? You can help us to make a difference today!
