Romans: We are Co-Heirs
Tom Atchison   -  

Passage: Romans 11:25-32 

Theme:  With God’s plans, purposes and promises there is mystery.  It is this mystery that moves against any possible snobbery (25).  The mystery is openly revealed—Jews and Gentiles are co-heirs, equal beneficiaries of the promises of God.  God’s plan brings hope to all the world and healing to those who believe.  Tucked in these verses is the phrase “all Israel will be saved.”  With clarity and precision “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.” (26)  Only messiah Jesus could do this!  And so with this the promises and calling of God are sure. God is worthy of all praise for His electing love and great mercy.
