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.

    Romans 9 might be the inception of Christianity. But simply uttering the words is not sufficient. In the name of Christ do people murder. God is a Heart knower. The entire person is required by God and not just the mouth. How do live your life? Is it to God. Are you aware of The commandments and that they apply to Christians as well as Jews.

    How wonderful of Paul, to inform the roman believers and remind the jews of God saying a people who did not know him as God and a foolish nation would reconize him as God. This not only ingrafts all nations to salvation but envokes the jews to examine themselves. Praise God

    The important verse in this chapter is , in my opinion Romans 10:10a. "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness.." This verse simply tells us that a person is justified before God when that person believes ( on the atoning work of Jesus Christ and in repentance).
