Then why does God still blame us? For who can resist his will? But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?” “Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump…Details
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,…Details
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…Details

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…Details
“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…Details
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…Details
