Ruminating on ROMANS! (Some Thoughts on Paul’s Great Epistle) #25 “Nine Truths about Being Saved!” (A Study of Romans 10)
Many of you know that my New Jersey friend Frank and I are reading through God’s Word together (described here). We’re now in the book of Romans and are reading chapter 10 each day this week.
NINE TRUTHS ABOUT SALVATION:
Truth #1- Our heart’s desire and prayer to God should be for others to get saved! (v. 1).
Truth #2- Getting saved means submitting to God’s righteousness in Christ! (vv. 3-4).
Truth #3- Christ provides righteousness to everyone who believes! (v. 4).
Truth #4- God’s way is not a righteousness by the law but by faith! (vv. 5-8).
Truth #5- The guarantee of salvation is declaring Jesus is Lord with your mouth and believing in your heart that God raised Him from the dead! (v. 9). [Interesting verse re the “Lordship salvation” debate].
Truth #6- Both heart and mouth are integral to salvation: one believes with the heart; one professes with one’s mouth (v. 10).
Truth #7- Believing on Him and calling on Him brings salvation, whether one is a Jew or a Gentile (vv. 11-13).
Truth #8- One needs to hear the message of salvation in order to believe in it (vv. 14-15).
Truth #9- Not all who hear the message will accept the good news (vv. 16-21)
