For the Sake of my Brethren (Romans 9:1-3)
Don Johnson, July 1, 2012
We see a dramatic change of tone and subject as we enter Romans 9. In the first few verses, we discuss the reasons for this change and show the Apostle's intense longing for his people, Israel, that they might be saved.

9:1 I am speaking the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit— 2 that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. 3 For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh. (ESV)
