But as regards election, they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers. 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. 32 For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.

Ø In summary, Paul’s confidence comes from unchanging God! It is God who by his sovereign election shows his mercy to everyone on equal footing of disobedience, through faith in Christ. Why?

DOXOLOGY: TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE GREAT PLAN OF SALVATION • An DOXOLOGY: TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE GREAT PLAN OF SALVATION • An Awestruck Exclamation: Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! (v. 33) Ø This is a climax of Paul’s theology of God’s plan for Israel’s salvation (also for all)—his theology led him to this outburst of doxology. Ø The depth of the riches in God’s wisdom and knowledge is revealed in God’s plan of salvation—God’s mind and ways are untraceable and unexplainable!

DOXOLOGY: TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE GREAT PLAN OF SALVATION • A DOXOLOGY: TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE GREAT PLAN OF SALVATION • A Rhetorical Question: 34"For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? " 35"Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid? " (vs. 34 -35) Ø Paul’s response to God’s plan of salvation is the awe and realization that NO ONE can really know God’s mind until it is revealed to us! Ø NO ONE can give him counsel and gift (obligation) to Sovereign Omniscient God!

DOXOLOGY: TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE GREAT PLAN OF SALVATION • An DOXOLOGY: TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE GREAT PLAN OF SALVATION • An Outburst of Praise: For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. (v. 36) Ø Ø From him: God is the source of everything! Through him: God is the means of everything! To him: God is the goal of everything! The ULTIMATE PURPOSE: To God and only to God be the glory forever. Amen!

Theology to Doxology Theology (our belief about God) and doxology (our worship of God) Theology to Doxology Theology (our belief about God) and doxology (our worship of God) should never be separated. On the one hand, there can be no doxology without theology. It is not possible to worship an unknown god. All true worship is a response to the self-revelation of God in Christ and Scripture, and arises from our reflection on who he is and what he has done. . . Worship without theology is bound to degenerate into idolatry. Hence the indispensable place of Scripture in both public worship and private devotion. It is the Word of God which calls forth the worship of God. On the other hand, there should be no theology without doxology. There is something foundationally flawed about a purely academic interest in God is not an appropriate object for cool, critical, detached, scientific observation and evaluation. No, the true knowledge of God will always lead us to worship, as it did Paul. Our place is on our faces before him in adoration. - John Stott
