God's Faithful People in Israel

1 So here is what I ask. Did God turn his back on his people? Not at all! I myself belong to Israel. I am one of Abraham's children. I am from the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God didn't turn his back on his people. After all, he chose them. Don't you know what Scripture says about Elijah? He complained to God about Israel. 3 He said, "Lord, they have killed your prophets. They have torn down your altars. I'm the only one left. And they are trying to kill me."#1(1 Kings 19:10,14)#2 4 How did God answer him? God said, "I have kept 7,000 people for myself. They have not bowed down to Baal."#1(1 Kings 19:18)#2 5 Some are also faithful today. They have been chosen by God's grace. 6 And if they are chosen by grace, it is no longer a matter of working for it. If it were, grace wouldn't be grace anymore.
