Romans 9:1-5 / Common English Bible
The tragedy of Israel’s unbelief
9 I’m speaking the truth in Christ—I’m not lying, as my conscience assures me with the Holy Spirit: 2 I have great sadness and constant pain in my heart. 3 I wish I could be cursed, cut off from Christ if it helped my brothers and sisters, who are my flesh-and-blood relatives. 4 They are Israelites. The adoption as God’s children, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the Law, the worship, and the promises belong to them. 5 The Jewish ancestors are theirs, and the Christ descended from those ancestors. He is the one who rules over all things, who is God, and who is blessed forever. Amen.
Hello Kingdom Family,
Welcome to our Jesus-centered community. We are glad you are listening to today’s message. “We are People Helping People Experience a Jesus-centered Life.”
Today we return to our message series “Romans: I Am Not Ashamed of the Gospel.” Our Scripture reading is Romans 9:1-5, and today’s message is “The Twisted Perception of Rejection.” We look at how Israel, Jewish Christians, and 21st Christians have had a pattern of assuming God has rejected them, and they, in turn, have rejected God. We review how Jesus was rejected by everyone, including his family, and the promises of God when we desire the Kingdom of God over the world system.
