Bible: Romans 11:2-6

11:2 God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew! Do you not know what the scripture says about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? 11:3 Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have demolished your altars; I alone am left and they are seeking my life! 1  11:4 But what was the divine response 2  to him? “I have kept for myself seven thousand people 3  who have not bent the knee to Baal.” 4 

11:5 So in the same way at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. 11:6 And if it is by grace, it is no longer by works, otherwise grace would no longer be grace.
