We have been grafted into the people of God. We, though we aren't naturally born into
the Kingdom, have been made children of our heavenly Father, adopted into the Kingdom of
God. By grace through faith in Christ, we have been grafted into God's family. We don't deserve
it. This is pure grace for the sake of Him who earned it for us, Christ Jesus our Lord.
This is God's plan from the beginning. He tells Abraham not only that He would make of
him a great nation, but that through Abraham's offspring all nations will be blessed. What offspring
was that? Isaac? Jacob? No. Jesus! Jesus is the offspring of Abraham by whom God
blesses all nations (aka Gentiles; aka you and me). We are saved by grace!
