The Future and Fate of Israel - Part 1

Sun, Feb 17, 2019
So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace. But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace. - Romans 11:5–6 (ESV) Do you trust the promises of God? Do you ever fear that you might do something to screw up God's gifts to you? Maybe, He might renege. Maybe I'll cross a line from which there is no return. Maybe God will finally get fed up with my disloyalty and find someone better. Have you had any of these thoughts? I have. Looking at the people of Israel in the Old Testament we see a group of people exactly like us - disloyal and fickle. While there were times of return and repentance it seems like the overall trend was downward away from God. As we get to New Testament times and even until?today it seems like God has left them behind. In our text for the coming weeks, Romans 11, Paul clarifies the present and future of the nation. He does this not to just fill us in but to provide confidence in the promises and character of our God. Will you take some time to read through Romans 11 before Sunday?
