Once, you Gentiles were rebels against God, but when the people of Israel rebelled against
him, God was merciful to you instead. Now they are the rebels, and God’s mercy has come to you so that they, too, will share in
God’s mercy. For God has imprisoned everyone in disobedience so he could have mercy on everyone.
As we see in this chapter Paul Is telling us that God loves all His people but He cannot partner with sin. He has given us mercy and also free will to make choices and we, as gentiles, have been given a gift of life through salvation, not by our works, but by His grace. We can be content in Him but there are consequences to our actions and those who reject the word of God will have consequences for their actions. The gift of love and many other gifts will not be taken away but He wants us to make the right choices. Living our lives in relationship with Him and glorifying Him as we walk with Him on earth in everything we do. I have made the right decision to follow Him and even though I make mistakes in life God will Continue to teach me and love me as long as my heart is humble and open to His love.
