TWO FOLD CHRISTIAN LIFE — BELIEVE + SHARE




(Read Romans 10)

.

Romans 10 begins with Paul's heartfelt confession that he prays for Israel to be saved. He is eager for each of his Jewish brothers and sisters to believe in Christ. He praises them for their enthusiasm for God, though they are ignorant of how to reach God's righteousness through faith in Christ (Romans 10:1–4).

.

Instead, the Israelites continue to try to be declared righteous by God for their religious law-keeping, despite how they continue to break that law. They continue to wait for the truth they already know to come down from heaven or up from the abyss when Jesus Christ has already done both of those things. Paul repeatedly references the Old Testament Scriptures both directly and as an analogy to make his bottom-line case about what is required to be saved (Romans 10:5–8).

.

Verses 9 and 10 are likely the most quoted verses from this chapter: "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved." Paul spells out that this opportunity to be saved by faith in Jesus is available to everyone, with no distinction between Jews and Gentiles. The Lord is the Lord of all people, and He gives good gifts to all who call on Him. Everyone who calls on Him will be saved. (Romans 10:9–13).

PLEASE PRAY WITH ME: My Holy Father in Heaven, You are so good! Your infinite kindness is beyond our comprehension. But, You, my Lord, are infinitely patient and loving. You alone are the truth and righteous way of life — please help us fill our ever yearning hearts and minds with Your goodness so that we may carry Your message to all those whom You have chosen and to all those who are yet to know You! Please watch over us as we do. This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. AMEN.

.

GOD BLESS YOU. (Please share!)
