Today is Thursday (my time). Every Thursday night we have bible study in my home and we have been going through the Book of Romans. It has been almost a year now. I thank the Lord, we have come now to Romans 9.
This morning, a loved one who attends the bible study asked me an interesting question.
Q: What is the meaning of this (bible study)? How has this affected or even changed our lives? What is the point of this (activity)?
This is how I answered this question.
A: The point is that though I hate and am angry at myself, and though I hate and am angry at my life, I want to know that God does not hate me nor is angry with me,..... but rather loves me.
I guess what I was alluding to was my search and constant assurance of 'favor Dei' [favor of God, i.e. Grace]. We know of course this is Jesus. John 1:17
How would you answer the question?
