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.

    Irene123 and Bud another helpful scripture maybe Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."
  • Jonathan Timmons
    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.
