Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:10


10:10 For with the heart - Not the understanding only. Man believeth to righteousness - So as to obtain justification. And with the mouth confession is made - So as to obtain final salvation. Confession here implies the whole of outward, as believing does the root of all inward, religion.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:10


Ro 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness. Such a belief, the faith that saves, is a power over the life. It influences the actions and brings us into "the obedience of faith", in yielding to Christ, wherein is found pardon. With the mouth confession is man unto salvation. The faith of the heart must be openly confessed. This is a test of the faith. Unless Christ had provided such tests as confession and obedience we could not know whether ours was really a belief of the heart. That our faith moves us to confession is to us an assurance of salvation. The whole Christian life is a confession.

    John 3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

    It is so very difficult to reach the the hearing of those who care little of Jesus's gospel. Needing nothing, enjoying aggression as entertainment, and blocking out any attempt to even consider there be a better way to live. My very own brother and sister are a classic example. My approach is love and laughter. As for the "hearing impaired " I should send by mail more pictures and letters.

    Whenever we share the word of God we must invite the Holy Spirit to speak on behalf of us the words should come out from God's mouth rather than the knowledge of a man. Lets be aware of the false preacher, the defeated enemy will always give us confusion but Jesus is always there to fight for us. A true preacher is the anointed one and full if grace used by Jesus to share his good news for us.

    Romans chapter 10 is Awesome Paul preaching to the church at Rome which had already obeyed Acts 2:38 telling them to continue to confess Jesus against all the persecution and false doctrine that was coming against the church of that day and they would be saved. God's Word will show you must be born of the water and Spirit John 3:3-5 , Acts 2:4, and 2:38 before we can confess Jesus 1 Cor 12:3

    Faith comes only by hearing the word of God without his words its impossible to please him. Obedience to his words is our salvation . HE who loves Jesus must keep his commandments. Thanks for the blood of Jesus that shed for us thru his blood and his words we received life in abundance thank yoi Lord and praise you forever amen

    I read some comments. I feel that the chapter of Romans is self explanatory. However I feel it takes an open mind and heart to hear and apply the word to ourselves. Reading is great but believing is another. I totally agree and honor the word of God. May God bless.
