  Rom 9:6-33     R C Sproul once joked with his church family with this question. “What am I doing here? Why do I bother to expound the Word of God to people who can’t remember the sermon three weeks later?”  He goes on to say in his commentary, “This didn’t bother him because my job is to open the Scriptures and expound them as carefully, accurately, and persuasively as I know how.  The efficacy of that preaching, the power of the exposition, never lies with me.
