Romans 9:1-5

For I am not ashamed of the gospel,because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek.”  Romans 1:16 (CSB)

 The Apostles Heart …

1.   A GENUINE _______________________ (1)

“For the love of Christ compels us, since we have reached this conclusion, that one died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the one who died for them and was raised…. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making His appeal through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf, ‘Be reconciled to God.’”    II Corinthians 5:14-15, 20 (CSB)

2.   A GENUINE _______________________ (2-3)

“My heart is filled with bitter sorrow and unending grief 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.” Romans 9:2-3 (NLT)

3.   A GENUINE _______________________ (4-5)

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because He has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.” John 3:16-17 (CSB)

“The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who rejects the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on Him.”  John 3:36 (CSB)
