People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:9


Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus. For the importance which Jesus attached to confession, see Mt 10:32 Lu 12:8 and compare Ac 8:37. To openly confess Christ in those days of persecution was a trial of faith of the severest kind. Note distinctly that there is no promise here to a concealed faith. And shalt believe in thine heart. That is, with all the heart. The belief must not be only a mental assent, but a belief that brings the whole man into loving trust and obedience to Christ. Such a faith is referred to in Ro 1:5 where the "obedience of faith" is described. Thou shalt be saved. Such a faith confessed unites its subject to Christ as his loving subject, and imparts to him the righteousness of those who have died to sin and been freed from the law. See Ro 6:1-4.

    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
