Questions We Ask Every Time We Read the Bible:

1. What do the verses say?
2. What's the backstory? What's the context?
3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage?

What does it say?

Paul expresses his anguish and trouble towards wanting everyone to be saved. He can testify that the Israelites are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. The gospel has been revealed to them, but not all will accept it.

What’s the backstory?

Romans 10:9 says, “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Jesus went to the cross already to die for our sins. This death resulted in a resurrection, just as it will for us.

What does it mean?

1. Everyone who calls on the name of The Lord will be saved.
2. We have the honor of being part of the work of sending and proclaiming so that those can hear and believe.

What does it mean for me?

Questions to Ask Yourself:

1. Am I guilty of having zeal without knowledge?
2. Have I thanked God recently for bringing the good news?
