Romans 10

Before reading this piece, I will admonish you first to take some time to read Romans, chapter 10, first on your own. So let’s establish some Biblical facts
[Vrs 4]. “For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given.[b] As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God[attain salvation]”. It did not say they are blessed, or have their prayers answered, etc. But to be right with God. Vrs 5 and 6b also says, “For Moses writes that the law’s way of making a person right with God requires obedience to all of its commands.[c] 6 But faith’s way of getting right with God says,…” God’s way of making someone right in His sight requires obedience on our part [Vrs 6]. Through faith. The way to salvation is pretty simple, confess with your mouth, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead.
Why is it so important to declare and believe in the resurrection, though, not to declare his supremacy, power, or that He is God. The Holy Spirit wants to make us understand that through the death of Jesus and most importantly His resurrection, he displays his supremacy, his power, and sovereignty all in one—so it is important to declare His Lordship in entirety. We get saved through the confession of our mouth that Christ resurrected from the dead, and we are made right with God by believing in our hearts for the same cause. [vrs 13] For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Again it reiterates the facts in verse 8 that we get saved through the confession of the mouth. Let us get it straight; believing in the heart comes first, then confessing the belief follows.
[vrs 14a] “But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him?…” the second part also then admonishes we Christians and those called according to His purpose to be the reason why people believe and hears the good news about Jesus. [14b] “…And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?” “And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent?…” in other words, how do we know if we are the chosen and sent one or not? It is simple; we are all believers sent and are messengers of the good news about Christ. Since you are made right with God by believing in your heart and saved through your mouth’s confession, God has entreated you then to make disciples of him also. We ought not to keep the good news only to ourselves. God really becomes sad when we reject him, or others reject him through disobedience or rebellion or any other form. [Vrs 21] “All day long, I opened my arms to them, but they were disobedient and rebellious.”
The Lord’s arms are always wide open to anyone who believes in their heart and confesses with their mouth that He was raised from the dead(declaration of His supremacy). He is so near to save and make you right with Him. God loves you, and all day he opens His arms to you to welcome you into His Kingdom and what gives him a greater joy is when we lead others into the discipleship of Christ
