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:  12:9-21  What is love?  What is the meaning of this passage?  How do you show love everyday?  How else can you apply this passage to your life?
