It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the LORD set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, but it is because the LORD loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the LORD has … redeemed you from the house of slavery.
Deuteronomy 7:7-8 (ESV)
Though grace and truth in their fullness came by Jesus Christ, (Jn.1:17) there was grace at work in the Old Covenant too. God is unchanging.
What encouragement today for those who struggle in small churches. The Lord loves you!
