From The Schoolmaster To The Savior - "The End of The Law for Righteousness"

 "What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith; but Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness. Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. As it is written: "Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, and whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.''  (Romans 9:30 -10:4)

As we move from the 9th chapter of the book of Romans and his blunt reality check to the Judaizers of God's sovereignty is implementing His divine purpose, the Apostle Paul presents the incessant issue resident in wayward Israel that served as the source of their failure as God's Elect of the Old Covenant: 1) Their abnormal focus on the SHADOW pointing to fulfillment of God's Purpose. 2) Their incessant need to make God's Plan about them rather than being about God's Plan, seeing themselves as THE object of God's redemptive plan rather than their role as an Elect Body by which His plan would be carried out. Join me in walking along with The Apostle Paul as he diagrams for them, and for us, the ONLY pathway to an eternal relationship with our Heavenly Father through Faith in Christ.
