"I was found by those who did not seek Me..."
Text: Romans 10:20
THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER
What is the real truth of the matter? Let us ponder the following text.
“First Moses says:
‘I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation,
I will move you to anger by a foolish nation.’
But Isaiah is very bold and says:
‘I was found by those who did not seek Me:
I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.’
But to Israel he says:
‘All day long I have stretched out My hands
To a disobedient and contrary people.'”
1. On very strong grounds
Paul had to refute false but bold excuses. He did this by citing two prominent Old Testament servants of God!
