“…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. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”Romans 10:9-13
If you memorize Scripture at all, putting Romans 10:9-10 deep in your heart is worth the effort. I first memorized the passage when I was a teenager some forty years ago and I am reminded of it whenever I speak with someone about their personal need for salvation.
Confessing with your mouth, believing in your heart, Notice that your faith in Christ is exercised in a couple of ways – “For with the heart, one believes and is justified, and with the mouth, one confesses and is saved.”
We tend to make things so complicated, don’t we? But whether you are a Jew or not, salvation is available for each of us, for “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Joel 2:32).
