Sermon based on Romans 9:1-13
- Paul lamented because of his kinsmen, the Israelites, and their unfaithfulness
- They were unfaithful in two ways:
- As God’s beloved children who are together the one body of Christ — His holy Church, we must be careful not to succumb to the same unfaithfulness as Israel
- It is only by God’s grace through faith that we are saved, never by works. And as His saved and beloved children, we are called to live lives differently than the world.
