In Romans 10, Paul quotes Isaiah when he wrote, “I have been found by those who did not seek me; I have shown myself to those who did not ask for me.”
This is said in context of Israel’s unbelief. Israel prided itself in being God’s chosen people and having special raking above other peoples. They followed God’s Law of no intermarriage and culture crossing, but did they do it with the right motive? Where they doing it out of obedience to God or because they believed that they were better than anybody else? I believe that the people of Israel became complacent in their “position”, and therefore let their guard down. Why worry when you are specially chosen of God? However, within the history of Israel is a great lesson for us: that while we are called by God and set apart, we are not above others. Therefore, let us not become complacent in our Christian walk.
