Passage: Romans 8:29 - Romans 9:9
29 For him whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to his own image, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover, him whom he did predestinate, him he also called; and him whom he called, him he also sanctified; and him whom he sanctified, him he also glorified.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can prevail against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Intro Paul's sorrow for the Jews -- Reasons therefore -- The calling of the Gentiles.
1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,
2 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart,
3 (For once I could have wished that myself were accursed from Christ,) for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh;
4 Who are Israelites; of whom are the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God,
5 And the promises which are made unto the fathers; and of whom, as concerning the flesh, Christ was, who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen.
6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel.
7 Neither, because they are all children of Abraham, are they the seed; but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
9 For this is the word of promise. At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son.
