Our Faithful God

We read last week in Chapter 9 that the apostle Paul was willing to give up his own salvation if only Israel could be saved. He more than anyone knew in spite of the blessings of God upon the nation of Israel, Israel failed. When the Messiah appeared, Israel rejected Him and crucified Him. No one knew this better than Paul, because in his early days he persecuted the church.

Jesus said “those who love much have been forgiven much and those who love little have been given little.”

Its understanding then why Paul had such great love for his Jewish brethren. He knew more than anyone what the zeal of the Jewish people was, even if that zeal was misplaced. You can be sincere and yet be sincerely wrong.
