God's love to Israel is like the Father's heart that burns with fire for His prodigal son, who long ago left his parental home and is wandering somewhere. People can think that he is lost and does not deserve his Father's love and His inheritance. But, the Father loves His son, despite everything and waits for him. When somebody says bad things about His son, the Father’s heart hurts.
But when somebody says, «Father, I believe and I see your son as a different person. I know that he will return. This is temporary. You wait, and I will wait along with you. Let's wait and believe in his return to Your house. » Only then Father's heart is glad and takes comfort. The time will come, and His people will turn their hearts to their God.
When we say so - it is a great pleasure for our Father. This is like a blessing for the one who bless. Obviously, we have nothing to give to God, but we can love Him back, by loving the One who is rejected by many. To love and serve the Jewish people are to bring joy and pleasure to our Heavenly Father.
