Bible verses about Calling the Gentiles
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Matthew 22:8-10

This third invitation reveals divine mercy offered to the Gentiles in addition to the Israelites. The good and bad represent the whole spectrum of moral character. The king's invitation shows no partiality; God can call both the good and the bad out of this world. But will the person repent, change his ways? Human goodness cannot earn an invitation to be called. So the good and bad are only welcome by invitation from God through the blood of Christ.

Is Heaven the Reward of the Saved?


 

Luke 15:25-31

The older brother represents the Pharisaical attitude that resents God's interest in sinners—the same attitude in the early church that looked suspiciously at the inclusion of Gentiles. His self-righteousness manifests itself in jealousy and envy. Today, the elder son is like those who, in self-righteousness, shun brethren who do not live up to their standard of righteousness (Proverbs 20:6; Galatians 6:3; Titus 3:5). Such people do not realize that their self-righteousness is as the filthy rags of the prodigal son (Isaiah 64:6).

Parables of Luke 15 (Part Three)


 

Acts 15:17

"The Gentiles who are called by My name" - In order to be called by the name of God, one must be a son of God, begotten by His Spirit. One must be part of His family. Gentiles do not seek God until after He reveals Himself to them, and they become converted. That is what the Book says. One does not seek God until after He converts him.
