Morning Prayer: 04 September – Romans 11:1-10 ~ a chosen remnant

Morning Prayer: 04 September
How does Paul apply this remnant theology to the facts of his own day and experience? It obliges him to stop generalizing about ‘Israel’ and to make a division. For what Israel sought so earnestly (presumably the righteousness of 9: 31) it did not obtain, at least not as a whole; but the elect did, namely those who were chosen by grace and so justified by faith.
