Rom. 10:11-21 – God wants all people to be saved and He does everything necessary for
man to be able to choose faith and salvation. He is open to everyone coming to Him.
He will see to it that the good news of Him is preached throughout all the Earth. He
personally addresses Himself to man calling him to repentance. And we have the
responsibility to respond to God by making the right choice.

Wrong Ways to God

Rom. 9:30-10:10- Man has the responsibility to seek God. However, there are wrong ways to try to pursue God. Examples are: an aspiration for good deeds only not pursuing faith in Christ; substituting sound faith for foolish jealousy; searching of God in distant places and not where you are now. Therefore, while we seek to know God, we should always ask, “what is the most important thing we should do?”

Rom. 9:6-29 – The doctrine of election is perhaps the most complicated part of biblical theology. It may seem illogical or unjust sometimes. Although it is impossible to answer all the questions that may arise concerning election, it is evident that the whole history of salvation is the history of God’s electing people. The fact that He elects prevents us from taking pride in ourselves, and it gives us hope.

Ps. 23 – Many people today are full of fear, uneasiness, and anxiety. This is not only the case for unbelievers. Christians are also often beset by anxiety and doubt. Christians know that they should seek consolation in the loving Shepherd. We ask, how can I trust the Lord in times of trouble and hardship? Just like David, whatever happens in our lives, we can trust God as a:
1. Caring shepherd – 1-4
2. Hospitable host – 5-6
