We're at the midpoint of our study of the book of Romans. Romans has been described as a book that has eight chapters of gospel in the beginning, four chapters of application at the end and three chapters of puzzlement in the middle. The absolute worst of the three chapters of puzzlement is the one we start today - chapter 9. What about the chapter is hard to accept? The first 13 verses deal with God making a distinction between certain people. God chose to work through Isaac, not Ishmael. God chose to work through Jacob, not Esau. Being chosen by God led to blessings and benefits. Not being chosen led to separation and ruin. Is this fair? Why and how did God make the choices He made?
