This Sunday: Faith Comes by Hearing
This Sunday we'll finish up Romans 10 as we consider verses 14–21. In this passage, Paul further explains the unbelief of Israel and very clearly lays out the steps necessary for a person to come to saving faith in Jesus. This is remarkable in light of the truths about God's sovereignty in salvation that he has been so clear about in Romans 9. And yet, as we'll see here at the end of Romans 10, God has fastened himself to the means of evangelism and the sharing of the gospel. Indeed, all who call on him will be saved—how beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news—and that good news creates the faith it requires.
I'm looking forward to working through the text with you!
Grace and peace,
