Unceasing Anguish

Challenging clip from Francis Chan as he considers Romans 9:1-5:

I am speaking the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit—that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. 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. They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. To them belong the patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen.

  1. Love Francis Chan. Anguish… Matt talked about that last night in our Wednesday Bible Study. He quoted David Wilkerson by saying “Passion is born of anquish.”  Thanks for this.
