21. The Salvation of Israel (Romans 10:1-21)Related Media
We learned from Romans chapter nine that since all of mankind has rejected God, He has the right to reject mankind. Fortunately for us, He is gracious to redeem many of us despite our ignorance and hostility toward Him. In fact, in chapter ten Paul applies that message of salvation equally to Israel. Certainly they have missed the "Messiah Freeway" and remained on the "Moses Tollway," but salvation is still offered to them. In chapter five of book one in Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis offers a good reminder at this point: “If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”
Do you feel like it’s too late for you in some area of life? Is there something in your life from which you need to turn? Progress can begin today.
