This Sunday: “Children of the Promise”
We continue our deep dive in the world of Romans 9 this Sunday as we look at verses 6–13. As we covered last week, the issue at hand is the unbelief of the vast majority of Israel and whether this casts doubt on God’s faithfulness. Paul’s answer is a resounding “No!” when he tells his readers that God’s word has not failed because there is a difference between ethnic Israel and believing Israel.
But how does one become part of this remnant, this true believing Israel? That’s the question Paul gets into in Romans 9:6–13, and his answer gets to the very heart of the doctrine of God’s sovereignty over salvation. I’m eager to dig into these truths with you Sunday!
