Ruminating on ROMANS! (Some Thoughts on Paul’s Great Epistle) #25 “Metaphors of Belief” (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.

What does it mean to “believe”? Here are several ways Paul explains belief in this chapter:

1. Belief is a zeal based on knowledge (v. 2).

2. Belief is submitting to God’s righteousness (v. 3).

3. There is righteousness for everyone who believes (v. 4).

4. This righteousness is by faith and involves declaring Jesus is Lord with one’s mouth and believing in one’s heart that God raised Him from the dead (vv. 6-9).

5. One believes with one’s heart and that brings justification (v. 10).

6. One professes faith with one’s mouth and that leads to salvation (v. 10).

7. Scripture teaches that those who believe in Him will never be put to shame (v. 11).

8. Belief = calling on the Lord (v. 12).

9. The guarantee? Everyone who calls on the Lord will be saved (v. 13).

10. One needs to hear of the One to believe in Him (v. 14).

11. Belief = accepting the good news (v. 16).

12. Faith comes from hearing the message (v. 17).

13. Belief = seeking and asking for the Lord (v. 20).

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)
