The Heart's Desire

Romans 10:1-2

1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

Paul could not continue without once more expressing the burden that he felt for his fellow Israelites to be saved. He was evidently addressing those Jews who had already come to Christ by faith. Calling them, "Brethren," he expressed the deepest desire of his heart.

"My heart's desire..." Paul's desire is expressed in the Greek text by the word εὐδοκία which is an expression of his deeply felt purpose, his good will toward his brethren in the flesh, which he wanted desperately to be satisfied, while at the same time feeling the vast gulf that separated him from them.

His purpose and his prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved. This purpose was clearly demonstrated in Paul's ministry in that he brought the gospel to the Jews first and then to the Gentiles. His prayers for Israel were not mere words but were accompanied by actions that clearly demonstrated his desires. The making of a disciple has three parts to it... God's, ours, and the disciple's. Paul fulfilled his part by his preaching, his earnest desire and his intercessory prayers for the people whom he loved.     Read More
