Paul’s Desire for Israel

Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. — Romans 10:1-4.

Paul’s ‘heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved’. Their zeal in trying to establish their own righteousness, which they can never do, shows their ignorance of God’s righteousness. That can only be found in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is ‘the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes’. In other words they must come to faith in Christ to be saved.
