Read Romans 9:1-5
I am speaking the truth; I belong to Christ and I do not lie. My conscience, ruled by the Holy Spirit, also assures me that I am not lying 2when I say how great is my sorrow, how endless the pain in my heart 3for my people, my own flesh and blood! For their sake I could wish that I myself were under God’s curse and separated from Christ. 4They are God’s people; he made them his children and revealed his glory to them; he made his covenants with them and gave them the Law; they have the true worship; they have received God’s promises; 5they are descended from the famous Hebrew ancestors; and Christ, as a human being, belongs to their race. May God, who rules over all, be praised for ever!n Amen.
Paul echoes the confidence of the Psalmist, a clear conscience, ruled by the Holy Spirit. He has just been testifying to God's undying eternal love for us.
Lord help my heart to realise your undying and eternal love for me.
