The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
If the first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too. But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrog…ant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you.
You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear; for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Amen, Amen, Amen
Yahweh God takes us in our brokenness and grafts (Inserts) us into His family, In doing this He shows the Agape Love He has for all of His creation. We should never think of ourselves as Superior to others, Or take for granted His enduring Love. Our Lord gives and our Lord takes away, for we are His creation and He is not ours. In our Brokenness, we are then made whole in Christ.

Redeemed son of Yahweh
