Israel’s Greatness (Romans 10:1 – 4)

Paul pauses on the Pathway of Hope to show us that salvation is available to all. The Israelites, with all their privilege and opportunity stumbled and did not achieve what they tried so hard to gain. The Gentiles, by contrast, finding God’s offer of salvation gladly received it and were made righteous. Paul continues to share with Roman believers just how greatly Israel had been blessed, how greatly he was burdened for them, and how greatly God was willing to show His love and mercy toward them.
