SAA Notes

In modern Israel there is a remnant chosen by grace. Verse 12 gives an excellent motivation for evangelism amongst Jews – their fullness (in-grafting into Christ through faith in Him as Messiah) will mean greater riches for the Gentile believers.

SJA Notes

* Holy God, aright our hearts today to Your heart, our thoughts to Your thoughts – That we might walk under Your will in all obedience.

“But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.”

There is an elect portion of Israelites who are chosen by grace (not works). The rest of Israel are hardened in their hearts.

True religion is the same for the Jewish person as for the gentile person.

Heart-religion. Saved by grace through faith.

Even for those descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – the same rule of grace applies.

That we cannot earn our salvation. That is it only through Jesus, as we believe in our hearts and confess with our lips.

* Father God,

Thank You for Your love for us, Jew and Gentile, the elect.

Thank You that membership into this group, Your family, is by Your grace – and nothing of works.

Thank You Lord God for all that You do for us.
