    Saved From Shame in a COVID-19 World

    Romans 9:1-5



    How many of you remember falling on the pavement when you were little and receiving road rash?  How many of you had a parent who insisted on making sure that your road rash was cleaned and that the best way to clean it was with rubbing alcohol or peroxide?  What hurt more: receiving the road rash, or receiving the alcohol or peroxide to clean the road rash? 



    After my crash on June 21, 2017, I received road rash from hitting the pavement from my shoulder down to my ankle.  To be honest with you, I was not all that aware of the road rash probably because of the pain I felt in my hip from hitting the pavement.  After I was transported to the ER, the nurse assigned to my care took one look at my road rash and the very large contusion on my right hip and informed me with a hint of remorse: “We will need to scrub that.”  I then asked: “Scrub what?”  I was horrified by her answer: “All of it.”  The few minutes it took to “scrub” my road rash and huge contusion so that I my wounds would not later become infected, felt ridiculously long; all that I wanted to do was scream at the nurse. 



    Romans 9 feels like a much needed, but painful scrub to wash out the theological infection of a man-centered theology that places human beings at the center of God’s universe.  So, what I would like to do today is help you understand why Romans 9 is in the Bible.  This will serve as the foundation for helping you understand for Romans 9:6-33. 



    There is a Future Shame Coming



    There is coming a day that, all of Scripture points to, will bring great shame upon millions of souls.  The day that is coming is referred to in the Bible as the Day of Judgment; a day that is described vividly in Daniel 12:1-3 and Revelation 20:11-15.  The description given to us by the prophet Daniel describes that day in the following way:



    At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. (Daniel 12:1–3)



    In the book of Revelation, the apostle John describes the coming day with a bit more detail:



    Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:11–15)



    It is in light of this coming day that the apostle Paul begins with Romans 9:1-5.  The reason Paul has “great sorrow and unceasing anguish” in his heart is because many of his Hebrew kinsmen would eventually stand before the Judge of creation only to experience the wrath of God.  Why was Paul’s sorrow great and his anguish unrelenting?  Because it was through the Hebrew people that salvation was promised, came in the form of one person, and it was that salvation that many of them could not accept.  The very last verse in Romans 9 is what
