Romans 9:1 to Romans 10:21

Paul’s sorrow in chapter 9 is about those who have rejected God, even though they already know that through Christ, He has chosen to call them His children. Then in chapter 10 Paul addresses the responsibility we all have of accepting God’s choice of us. He speaks from the heart as one whose life has been transformed by accepting Christ rather than defiantly rejecting Him. Having acted on our choice to accept Christ in faith, we then have a responsibility to be fully “living the gospel”. The two go together!
