TOPIC: Concern for the Lost

OPENING PRAYER: Make my life oh Lord a reflection of you as I study your word.

SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY: Romans 9:1 – 13

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q 2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
• Q 7: What truth is God revealing to me in this passage?

MESSAGE: Paul’s deep concern, and anguish of heart for his people is similar to that of Abraham for Sodom and Gomorrah and of Daniel for the exiled Israel. This drove all three to pray earnestly for the nation and people (Genesis 18:20-33 and Daniel 9:1-19). How concerned are we about the salvation of our relations, friends, and neighbours? If we love Christ, we will grieve over those who are spiritually lost. This will eventually lead us to pray for, and share the Good News with them in obedience to The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19&20).

Read vs.4-5 again and observe the initial election of Israel and the accompanying blessing. However, they misused the privilege. When the Messiah came, they rejected and crucified Him. Therefore, they were temporarily rejected by God and this provides an opportunity for the Gentiles to be brought in. Thus, through faith in Christ, the Gentiles have become spiritual offspring of Abraham (vs.6-8; also see Romans 11:11-12).

God’s election simply means that it was God’s choice to save us by His mercies and not by any merit of our own (vs.10-13). We need to be ever thankful for that.

Practice/Word Application
So What? Write down the names of three people around you, for whom you are burdened to see come to faith in Christ. Pray for them right away.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Genesis 1:11

One Year Bible Reading Plan
1 Kings 6, 7, Matthew 26.
