Day 53 – Romans 9:13 – Why did God hate Esau?

Just as it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.” (Romans 9:13) I have trouble with this Passage.  It hits me in the gut every time I read it!  God is love (See 1 John 4:8), so how could God hate Esau? Neither of these twins were lovable. Jacob was a deceiver, and […]

Day 52 – Romans 9:10-12 – What is the Biblical Doctrine of Election?

Not only that, but Rebekah’s children had one and the same father, our ancestor Isaac.  Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad – in order that God’s purpose in election might stand: not by works but by him who calls, she was told, “The older will serve the younger.”  […]

Day 51 – Romans 9:6-9 –What can we learn from Abraham in the Bible?

But, it is not as though the word of God had failed.  For not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel, and not all are children of Abraham because they are his descendants; but “Through Isaac shall your descendants be named.” This means that it is not the children of the flesh who […]

Day 50 – Romans 9:1-5 – Why did Apostle Paul suffer for Christ? What are the advantages of being Jewish?

I speak the truth in Christ – I am not lying, my conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit – I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart.  For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race, […]

Day 49 – Romans 8:38-39 – Who can separate us from the love of Christ?

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39) The Good News […]

Day 48 – Romans 8:33-37 – Why do people accuse others? Does Jesus condemn Christians?

“Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?  It is God who justifies.  Who is he that condemns?  Christ Jesus, who died – more than that, who was raised to life – is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. “Who shall separate us from the love […]

Day 47 – Romans 8:28-30 (Part 2) – How does God make himself known to us?

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.  For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.  And those he predestined, he […]

Day 46 – Romans 8:28-30 (Part 1) – Who will be saved? Who will go to heaven?

Good morning!  Are you among the people who can’t love a God who sends many to hell?  Or are you in mourning because one of your loved ones doesn’t believe that Jesus is their Savior?  I believe that God wants us to be encouraged because He is merciful!  God also wants all Christians to be […]
