There are a couple reasons why I didn’t want to do a sermon on Romans 9 and one singular reason I couldn’t avoid doing a sermon on Romans 9. The two reasons to not do it were, 1) Lengthy sermon series and entire books have been done on this chapter of the Bible which can prove daunting and, 2) the debates that are created as a result of this chapter often reveal the immaturity of Christians. All to often we want to be right more than we want Jesus himself.
Yet Romans 9 has significantly changed the way I've seen who God and is and how he works. I can't not preach on this. We will see how God's sovereign choosing displays his glory, what two common objections that are raised in response to this, and what the implications are for believing in the God of Romans 9.
