Read Romans 9:1-5
9:1 I am speaking the truth in Christ--I am not lying; my conscience confirms it by the Holy Spirit--
9:2 I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart.
9:3 For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my own people, my kindred according to the flesh.
9:4 They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises;
9:5 to them belong the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, comes the Messiah, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.
In the letter to the Romans Paul argues for why Gentiles and Jews can both belong to the family of God through Christ. Paul wants Jews and Gentiles to be in good relationship with each other and know that they can belong in the same family.
Lord help us to be united in realising that your love is for all people.
