TAKE A CLOSER LOOK
SCRIPTURE READING: ROMANS 9:30-33
Well, where does this all lead us? We’ve been told that God is sovereign, and has the right to do as He wishes with His people. That He allows us to choose our way, but He can work as He pleases in our lives, in the direction we have chosen. And we know that God wants us to choose His way, that He is saddened if we turn from Him, but that only a small number (comparatively speaking) choose God. Israel was God’s chosen people, but as a nation they had rejected Jesus, their Messiah.
