It's Day 40 and we're in Romans 9.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verses 15-21 - These are verses that I struggle with because they are so heavy toward predestination. Still, you've got to keep digging into passages, even on the ones that initially seem problematic.
- Verse 3 - Quite an offer: Paul is so burdened for Israel's lostness that he says he wish he was lost if that would somehow make Israel faithful again.
- Verses 6-8 - This simply means that those who have believed God are the spiritual descendants of Abraham.
- Verses 15, 18 - Various passages in the Bible note the two sides of the equation: some emphasize our human freedom, some emphasize God's actions. This one points toward what God does.
