Day 59 – Romans 10:1-3 – How is righteousness obtained? – Part 2

Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge.  Since they disregarded the righteousness that comes from God and sought to establish their own, they did not […]

Day 58 – Romans 9:30-33 – How is righteousness obtained? – Part 1

What then shall we say?  That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith; but Israel, who pursued a law of righteousness, has not attained it.  Why not?  Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works.  They stumbled over the “stumbling […]

Day 54 – Romans 9:14-18 – Why does God show us mercy? Why does God harden hearts? What is God’s glory?

What then shall we say?  Is God unjust?  Not at all!  For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”  It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.  For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, […]
