First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Romans 9.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
-Historical — Paul laments the spiritual state of people who were born as descendants of Abraham biologically, but are not spiritually part of God’s family because they are not of faith.
– Doctrinal — Paul’s willingness in verse three, to be cut off from God if Israel could be saved, was actually accomplished by Jesus at the cross.
– Inspirational — Dear God, please give me the heart of Jesus and the heart of Paul to pray that terrible prayer of verse three.
