As we continue to work our way through Romans we come to the beginning of Ch 9, where Paul digresses. He digresses over his enormous and unrelenting heartache that so few of his own people, who had such a rich heritage of being used by God to bring forth the Messiah, had turned to Jesus as Lord and Saviour. It is a powerful reminder to us, that a rich, godly family heritage does not make us believers. We are only saved because of God’s sovereign grace! Paul himself was only converted because Jesus confronted him in a powerful way.
