Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:5


10:5 For Moses describeth the only righteousness which is attainable by the law, when he saith, The man who doeth these things shall live by them - that is, he that perfectly keeps all these precepts in every point, he alone may claim life and salvation by them. But this way of justification is impossible to any who have ever transgressed any one law in any point. #Lev 18:5|


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:5


Ro 10:5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is by the law. Paul now shows the Jews who cling to the law that the law itself is against the law as a way of securing righteousness. In Le 18:5. The man which doeth those things shall live by them. He who keeps the law in all respects blameless shall have life. But Paul has elsewhere shown that no one can keep the law perfectly (see notes on Ro 2:13 4:15,16 Ga 3:12). That righteousness, then, requires a perfect obedience, a sinless life. What Jew could say that he had never sinned?

    Salvation has to do with humility, and being sincere! God knows exactly what goes on in our hearts, and if one humbles themselves with God and are sincere about wanting to get saved, he will save that person! Amen.

    Romans 10:10 "For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Ezekiel 33:31 "And they come unto thee as the people comes, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goes after their covetousness." In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus began to teach us what it means to have the kingdom of heaven within us what was true religion and piety, and what was false. MAny times and many ways He protests to us, "Thou shalt NOT be as the hypocrites!" Yet the doctrine of the Pharisees persists and multitudes believe that merely "Mouthing" the words is all it needs to get their names in the Divine Registry! You can't put words in someone's mouth that isn't in their heart and without the truth in the heart, the words will not mean a thing to God. They have to know the Truth in order to acknowledge the Truth unto a saving faith in Christ. "You cannot give what you haven't got!"
