11/13 Romans 10:5-9
For Moses writes that the law’s way of making a person right with God requires obedience to all of its commands. 6 But faith’s way of getting right with God says, “Don’t say in your heart, ‘Who will go up to heaven?’ (to bring Christ down to earth). 7 And don’t say, ‘Who will go down to the place of the dead?’ (to bring Christ back to life again).” 8 In fact, it says, “The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: 9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Do you believe? Everything keys upon belief. Salvation is a grace gift for the one who believes. Our relationship is based on the work that God in His Son, Jesus Christ, has done. For by grace are you saved through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. In Christ and Christ alone are we saved. Jesus is the only way to the Father.
