Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:8


10:8 But what saith he - Moses. Even these words, so remarkably applicable to the subject before us. All is done ready to thy hand. The word is nigh thee - Within thy reach; easy to be understood, remembered, practised. This is eminently true of the word of faith - The gospel. Which we preach - The sum of which is, If thy heart believe in Christ, and thy life confess him, thou shalt be saved.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:8


Ro 10:8 But what saith it? What does God's righteousness demand? It replies that we do not have to go either to heaven or to hades to lay hold of salvation, but that the word is nigh thee. The gospel is at hand. Faith in it, nourished in the heart and openly confessed, will secure salvation. This is more fully explained in the next verse.

    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved is the first part of it. This chapter expressed to call on the name of the lord/confess it. This means that you have transformed. Transformation is a total turn of events in your life. This means to give up your old ways and put on the new. This means to not go back and do what you were doing.
