Romans 11 "Perseverance and Rejection"

The urging of God, through the pen of Paul, in this chapter of his Letter to the Romans, helps us to see the importance of "Perseverance":  The critical place of staying committed in our dependence upon the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary. And the consequence of rejection for all who refuse to respond to God when He calls to us to believe in His Son.  We see also, the danger for all who think it is our own doing, when we come to faith in Christ, as if we might boast in some wise decision.
