Romans: Saved for Mission

Mr. Jacob Graudin | Romans 9:11-24 |

Romans 11 presents modern readers with a puzzling image: two olive trees, one’s branches being broken off and cast to the ground, the other’s branches grafted broken off and grafted to the first. What exactly do these trees, and the breaking off and grafting on, represent, and how does it touch our very non-agricultural lives? Join Jacob Graudin as he wrestles with this imagery and the picture of God’s faithfulness it delivers.

In Romans chapters 9 and 10, Paul explores the ramifications of the gospel for his Jewish kin. He wrestles with questions of God’s sovereignty and the means by which salvation is declared. Paul is passionate for his fellow Jews and seeks to declare the gospel to them in hopes that they will come to salvation by faith in Christ. Join Ryan Thompson as he applies these powerful chapters to the lives of our Cathedral family.
