Romans 10 Commentary

Bible Text: Romans 10:1-4 (ESV)

1 Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

Reflection Questions

Romans 10:1-3

  • If the Jews commendably had a “zeal for God” with insufficient knowledge, how much more is it appropriate for me to have zeal for God with the full knowledge of God’s grace and salvation plan?
  • Reflect on the words used to describe the Israelites—“seeking to establish their own” and “did not submit.”  What is the relationship between will-power driven efforts to establish my own righteousness and a refusal to submit to God’s way of grace?  How can I guard myself against this?
