We have become His children
Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. Galatians 3:7
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
God will work out His promises to Abraham and fulfill the calling of the Jews. But they have to listen to God's voice and accept His Son. This unwillingness of the Jews has caused much pain and suffering. God's will be done even if He has to wait. This shows only His great Love for His people.
Jew or gentile, we have nothing to boast about, we were all like filthy rags, according to the scriptures. Only through the Blood of Yeshua (Jesus Christ) we have found mercy and grace. Through His sacrifice we are now the children of God and the seed of Abraham, no matter our background or our where-abouts.
Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. 1 Corinthians 7:19
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:28,29
