Read Romans 9 today.

In this chapter, Paul is writing about the Israelites and their relationship with God.

Each time I read this chapter I am struck by verses 2-3. Paul’s desire is for the best for his Jewish brothers and sisters. It makes me wonder if my desire for the best for someone else is this strong.

Who do you know who is far away from God today? What are you willing to to to nudge them a little closer?

Romans 9:2-3 NLT
My heart is filled with bitter sorrow and unending grief [3] for my people, my Jewish brothers and sisters. I would be willing to be forever cursed-cut off from Christ!-if that would save them.
