Paul's Kinsmen

BibleInPoems, Ron Calugar, 2015-2024 . . 297
Romans 9:1-11:36

Paul said, my heart is heavy for my kinsmen, the chosen few.
But not all of Abraham's children, can call themselves a Jew.

God said through Isaac I will come, but not both of his sons.
Only Jacob have I chosen. His seed will be the ones.

But even those through Jacob's line who claim the law to keep,
Will not all be the chosen few, when God selects his sheep.

And just as not all Israel, Christ's offer will receive.
So not all Gentiles will be lost. For many will believe.

Paul was sad that people knew of God, but their faith was not in Him.
It was in their keeping of the law. By their works the race they'd win.

But God says no. You must believe. Salvation is by grace.
Jesus Christ the only way to God. On the cross he took our place.

This message is to all men. Not just the chosen few.
And if you trust in Jesus Christ, this message is for you.

One day the Lord will come again and Israel shall believe.
With all the faithful Gentiles Christ kingship they'll receive.
