In today’s reading, Paul takes up one of the more vexing issues facing Jewish followers of Jesus in the first century AD: Why hadn’t more of their own people embraced Jesus as their Messiah? Did this mean God had failed to make good on his promises to his own people?

This was not just an academic exercise for Paul. This was his own people he was writing about. For more on how Paul wrestled with this difficult question, watch today’s video before you begin reading...

Today we'll read pages 177-188 from Romans.  


Enjoy the journey,

Greeting from Tim Ciccone

Dear Covenant Friends:

Greetings! I am so excited that we are participating in the CBE project together! John Stott said, “We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb us, to undermine our complacency…." I love this quote especially in light of this week’s reading. Consider the section of Romans–particularly on page 182-when Paul urges us to offer our lives as living sacrifices to God. What an incredible message for youth and adults alike! What a necessary challenge: that we are called to give over all of who we are for the glory of the Lord. The absolute way to live our lives is–as everything about us, our hopes, dreams, goals, everything–for the glory of God! Lord give us wisdom and strength to do just that! #WithGodsHelp
