Read Romans 10:14-15
Paul quotes Isaiah 52 here. The Israelites had been exiled to Assyria and Babylon as a result of their stubborn disobedience. The good news here is that those in Babylon are going to be able to return home.
- What “good news” is Paul referring to here?
- Think through what you know of the scriptural history. How does Jesus being the Messiah offer “good news” to all of these generations, from Abraham to David to the Israelites returning from captivity to John the Baptist?
- Who is someone the Lord has for you to share the “good news” with? Stop and pray for those people right now.
WEEK 2: MEMORY VERSE
9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
