They have a zeal for God, but not according to the Knowledge

Romans 10:2

When Paul wrote these words he was speaking of the Jews in the Nation of Israel. This was the group of people who had the "best knowledge" about God in the world. Romans 9:4-5 talks about all that God had given them and it is an impressive listing:

4 They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. 5 To them belong l the patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen.

Today the modern day Christian has the best access to the word of God. How are we doing? There is plenty of zeal (passionate ardor in the pursuit of anything). The real question to me is what is the pursuit of our heart because if it is not Jesus, completely Jesus then we need to examine ourselves.
