NEVER PUT TO SHAME [Rom 9:30-33]

“As it is written:

‘See, I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling,

and a rock of offense;

and the one who believes in Him

will never be put to shame.’” vs33

Here is the point. Whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame. People stumble at the doctrine of election, because they believe that He saves some and hardens others, but they do not believe that He receives all!

Yes, the elect shall be saved, but the elect come to Him in faith. They put their faith in Jesus Christ, and He receives them. The problem is not your sinfulness; it is unbelief. The problem is NOT Him rejecting; it is coming to Him the wrong way.

First, the Gentiles were filthy sinners. “What should we say then? Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained righteousness--namely the righteousness that comes from faith [vs30].” They were homosexuals, fornicators, and adulterers. Often, a woman carries intense shame because of her sinful past and lustful present. Yet, Rahab the Harlot got in! She was not despised because of her whoredoms. She was received into the bloodline of Jesus Christ. In fact, four women named in Matthew 1, in our Lord’s bloodline, were sinners. Tamar played the harlot, Rahab was a harlot, Ruth was from a cursed people the Moabites, and Bathsheba was an adulterer. Do not let your sinfulness keep you away.

Secondly, Israel tried to be good enough, and here is a lesson for all: If we don’t take the place of a sinner, then we CANNOT be saved. “But Israel, pursuing the law for righteousness, has not achieved the righteousness of the law [vs31].” If we have one shred of righteousness, then we’ll be rejected. But, if we plead guilty to our sins, then we’ll receive the mercy. If we reject our own righteousness, then we can have His. If we’re conquered by the gospel and surrender to its terms, then it will save us. If we believe Christ, then we’ll be received. If not, then every branch of religious effort will be chopped off and thrown into the fire. If WE are good enough, then we’ll perish forever.

Thirdly, faith is the only way to be saved! “Why is that? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were by works [vs32].” We must trust the Lord Jesus Christ. We must trust God's pity, His compassion, and His promise. We must trust the blood that He shed, and be saved as HELPLESS sinners. We must be saved as totally depraved, trusting the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will give it! Come to the feast. Eat. Take all that you need.

Many people stumble over Christ because it is unnatural to be saved by grace! “They stumbled over the stumbling stone. As it is written [vs32].” It is unnatural to be forgiven and to stand in Somebody Else’s righteousness - to be justified by the obedience of One, and to have righteousness imputed to me. Living a holy life is irrational to sinful man, if I’m forgiven and guaranteed the inheritance. This, however, is the doctrine of Christ. He elects sinners and receives all who come empty handed. He is different from carnal thinking and contrary to human reason, but we walk by faith.

God must reveal it, or we stumble, realizing only when it’s too late, that we COULD HAVE been saved.

→ “Yet, the one who believes on Him will not be put to shame [vs33].” As hard as it is to believe, It is truth, and if we receive it, then we wont perish. Cast aside your confusion and every doubtful voice. Press in and put your trust in Jesus Christ.
