Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.

Christ For Righteousness – Romans 10:1-4

Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. (Romans 10:1–4 ESV)
