Commentary: Paul reassures the Israelites that they have not been abandoned by the Lord. Israel is God’s chosen nation, His chosen people. They have repeatedly rejected Him, and continued to reject Him. Through the salvation of the Gentiles, the Israelites will return to the Lord. Sacrificing for Christ does not have to be an epic stand, rather everyday things, such as volunteering. Such sacrifices should be made out of love and not obligation.
Focus Verses: 11:17-22 Are you proud and conceited? We are not to hold ourselves above others because we have been saved by Jesus Christ - on the contrary! We know right from wrong due to our salvation; we know our sins and how imperfect out lives really are! How are you to behave? How do you behave?
