David, in the Psalms, says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: may they prosper who love you” (122:6).
True peace—and the restoration of Israel—will one day come through the Lord Jesus Christ (Zech. 12:10; Rom. 11:26). As ministers of the gospel, we hold fast to that future hope. Still we understand that we are not to be idle as we wait for that day. Reconciliation between God and man, whether Jewish or Gentile, comes by the hearing of the Word of God (Rom. 10:17).
