“Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.” – Romans 11:5

Isaiah chapter one shows us that if it were not for “the remnant” the nation of Israel would have been as Sodom and Gomorrah – destroyed. Now, in Romans chapter eleven we see that this remnant is still in existence as the apostle Paul writes under the inspiration of God.

The word “remnant” has to do with a “small remaining part.”

Here are just a few simple thoughts about a remnant.

1. It’s a Small Piece

– It is a left over piece.
– It is part of the original larger piece.

2. It’s a Separated Piece

– Once all the cutting is done, there are always leftovers from the fabric.
– It is not thrown out with the trash because even a “remnant” still has value or purpose.

3. It’s a Sought After Piece

 – There are always people who will walk into a fabric store looking for “remnants.”

4. It Has a Specific Purpose

– Whether it is being sought after to be used as a “patch” for someones clothing, drapery, or other item…
– It may be sought after to be added to a quilt which provides warm and even decoration along with many other “remnant” pieces…

A remnant may not be able to make a whole outfit, but it can be used to patch one or even compliment one. A simple left-over piece of material sure makes a perfect illustration for the word “remnant” used in describing those faithful-few still standing for the LORD in some of the difficult times of history. During this COVID19 crisis that our world is facing; there are people taking pieces of fabric (remnants) and making them into masks for their own safety, and the safety of others. Be part of the “remnant!”

 “Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.” – Isaiah 1:9
