By way of a brief overview, Romans may be considered Paul’s greatest work when it comes to his treatment of Christian doctrine. He longs to meet the believers in Rome. Rome mind you was a very pluralistic society religiously. You could believe anything as long as it did not conflict with Roman authority and the will of Caesar. Caesar being viewed as god. In Romans 9, our text for today, Paul begins by outlining how God by His own will chose a people and prepared them for Himself. He adopted them, dressed them with the covenants. Adorned them with the prophets. Presented them with His promises. While giving them the temple service and the law. He gave them the presence of His glory. And after having done that, above all else He gave them Jesus His very own Son who was a Jew. While giving them the crown, Jesus Christ, they rejected Jesus as their Savior.
Will Israel’s sin and stubbornness defeat the purposes of God? What will God’s response be to those whom He chose, but they did not choose Him back?. . . For the full sermon visit: http://inglewoodfirstpres.org/audio-sermon/listen-now-gods-sovereign-choice-romans-9
