All Israel Will Be Saved

Romans 11: 1-36 – Paul concludes this section of the letter to the Romans with yet another big question: “Has time run out for Jewish people to be saved?” He answers with an emphatic “NO!” It’s an answer which brings hope to the Jes and one which brings hope and challenge to us.

Christ is the End of the Law

Romans 9:30-33 and 10:1-21 – Paul explains that one of the reasons that so many of the Jews have not accepted Jesus as Lord is because they have been pursuing peace with God through works and not by faith. We need to learn from their error, see the importance of gospel proclamation and glory in the grace and patience of God.

The Justice of God in Salvation

Romans 8:31-9:33 – The end of Romans 8 glories in the unending, indestructible love of God. But are those promises too good to be true? In Romans 9 Paul takes us through various things which might cause us to doubt including the unbelief of his Old Testament people and God’s sovereign choice of those who are saved to show us that God’s love for the Christian is absolutely and utterly reliable.

Standing Firmly

Daniel 3 – A new law brings a stark choice to three godly men: would they bow before an idol or stand firm in their faith? They stand firm – get thrown into a fiery furnace – and are rescued by God! A fantastic account of faithfulness, trust and courage – with many challenges for us.
