Verse of the Day 5-5-21

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile-the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”-Romans 10:9-13

Salvation comes through openly declaring that Jesus is lord of your life and believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead. There is no magic formula or special ritual for salvation. And the same salvation is available to everyone. That is the most important point that Paul is making in this passage. Over and over throughout verse 12 (For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile-the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him) Paul uses the word all. I’m going to let you in on a little secret, the word all in whatever language you speak means the same thing: everything or everyone. We as human beings like to put restrictions on whom God can and cannot save. We like to say that God will only save those who look like us, talk like us and act like us. God, however, puts no such restrictions on salvation. God’s only requirement is that you call on him and believe.
