No People Like Our People

2 Samuel 7:23-29 NRSV

Who is like your people, like Israel? Is there another nation on earth whose God went to redeem it as a people, and to make a name for himself, doing great and awesome things for them, by driving out before his people nations and their gods? (2 Samuel 7:23)

We are special; but we are not “better than.”  We are blessed because we are redeemed by the one born in Bethlehem.
