What are the things that you have done and doing that makes you feel more righteous before God? How can we correct this kind of self-cleaning and self-righteous attitude in light of the gospel? What are the ways that we can redeem the passion for the gospel truth?
In Romans 10:1, Paul expresses his heart’s desire and prayer to God for the salvation of his fellow Jews. Who are the people around you that you have this kind of heart’s desire and prayer to God? What are the small steps that you want to make to help them to find the salvation in Jesus?
