Zechariah 8:8

And l will bring them
To Zion, into the church of God, the Gospel fold, where Christ has engaged to bring his other sheep, that there may be one fold for Jew and Gentile, ( Jeremiah 3:14 ) ( John 10:16 ) : and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem:
the Gospel church; and be no more foreigners and strangers, but of the household of God, enjoying all the immunities and privileges of the Jerusalem that is above, the mother of us all: and they shall be my people;
appear to be so by effectual calling; which makes those manifest to be the people of God, to be in the covenant of his grace, who before were not known to be so, either by themselves or others, ( 1 Peter 2:10 ) : and I will be their God, in truth, and in righteousness;
according to the covenant of his grace, which will now in a very open manner be truly and faithfully fulfilled; and they, in consequence of the grace bestowed on them, will worship God in sincerity and truth, being justified by the righteousness of Christ, and so will have no dependence on their own for their acceptance with God; see ( Hosea 2:19 Hosea 2:20 ) .
