Respond to God’s plan of righteousness by faith, by grace alone.
I. Hope on Grace Alone (11:1-10)
Has God rejected His People?
II. Humble yourself by Grace Alone (11:11-24)
Continue in His kindness
III. Have Certainty by Grace Alone (11:25-36)
For the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable
Depth and a God of glory
“It is God and God alone, God’s name and namesake alone… it is God who is deep in riches, God who is deep in wisdom, God who is deep in lovingkindness, and God who is deep in glory. Not us. This is the message of the Bible.” (Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gospel)
• Why can’t God’s choice be by works, but only by grace?
• Why is Israel’s hardening grace to us? How can God do that?
• What’s our primary response to so great a salvation, as a branch?
• How does God’s favor being ‘irrevocable’ affect you?
