This sermon on Romans 11:7-12 is titled “Grace In Failure” and was preached on 25 October 2020 by Caleb Stomberg at Grace Baptist Church in Grand Forks, ND.
7 What then? Israel failed to obtain what it was seeking. The elect obtained it, but the rest were hardened,
8 as it is written,“God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that would not see and ears that would not hear, down to this very day.”
9 And David says,“Let their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them;
10 let their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see, and bend their backs forever.”
11 So I ask, did they stumble in order that they might fall? By no means! Rather, through their trespass salvation has come to the Gentiles, so as to make Israel jealous.
12 Now if their trespass means riches for the world, and if their failure means riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full inclusion mean!
