But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10: 8-10)
Has anyone every walked up to you and asked “How do I become a Christian?” These verses give you the beautiful answer. There are a lot of people that think it must be a complicated process, but it is not. Salvation is as close as your own mouth and heart.
The Word of God is very plain and simple and we must take what He says literally in these verses. If you confess with your mouth the Lord is Jesus and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Halleluiah… We don’t have to earn our Salvation or keep on feeling guilty because we feel we are not doing enough to please God. The Apostle Paul even clarifies this biblical truth even more in verse 13, when he said, “For "whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Jesus did it all folks, “It is Finished!”. What a relief to know that if I were an unbeliever, out in the desert dying of thirst, and there was no hope of rescue, I can reach out to the Lord Jesus and say, “Jesus save me!” and He will welcome me home.
