Wild Olive Shoots – August 17, 2014

“Wild Olive Shoots”
Text: Romans 11:1-6, 13-24
As we continue our journey through Romans, Paul writes about the unique relationship between Jews and Gentiles. We are reminded that we are “wild olive shoots,” grafted into the tree. Paul points out that the wild olive shoots can be cut off, and that the cultivated branches could be grafted back in. This image shapes our perspective as one of humility and gratitude.
