Tomorrow begins my sermon series on Romans chapters 9-11 entitled, "eXchange : relationship." I am excited to delve into the riches of Paul's teaching concerning Israel. These chapters are not easy to understand but are worth every minute of study. In them we discover God's past election of Israel, Israel's present rejection of the Messiah and future restoration. The passage for this week, Romans 9:1-13, we learn how God is faithful even when our circumstances are telling us otherwise.
