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.

Discussion for Romans 10:9

  • Ronald Hunte on Romans 10:9
    What does it mean faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Romans 10:9
    The terms "by," used twice in the Greek text for this Verse is actually the preposition "out of," as a source.

    We know from scripture that faith is a fruit of God's Spirit. It is not of man. Faith is produced by God's Spirit. We cannot produce biblical faith ourselves. We have human faith, but that is different than the faith that the bible speaks of. Faith is a word that describes the presence and activity of God's Spirit in a believer's life. The word faith itself literally means persuasion.

    The literal translation from the Greek text for Romans 10:17 should read "So then faith comes from "out of" hearing, and hearing from the word of God."

    Faith comes to us from out of hearing God's word. His Spirit ministers to us and persuades us and gives us the faith to do what God wants us to do out of the hearing of His word.

  • Moses njenga on Romans 10:9
    Salvation is for those that put their trust in HIS finished work, then boldly unashamely confess HIS Lordship in your life. Paul set the tone when he declared that he is not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of GOD unto salvation.
  • MockingBird on Romans 10:9
    I must confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and I shall be saved I will be raised from the dead death of trespasses and sins. I will be raised to newness of life . Death has no more dominion over me. It comes against me but it has no dominion over me. Right now in this my life I can experience freedom from sin and death. Death is separation from God. Anything that breaks up there is death separation.
  • Robert Wigglesworth on Romans 10:9
    i ve always enjoyed the book of Romans
  • Edmund on Romans 10:9
    I must remember my action speeks louder than my words. I must now learn the scriptures that teach me the actions I "must do" & learn the scriptures of the actions I "must stop doing" remembering King David, when he told God he was sorry he "NEVER DID IT AGAIN". AMEN...
  • Evalena J Latham on Romans 10:9
    Thanks be to Almighty God through Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour for Salvation for all who believe that Jesus Died to save all men. We who believe that by His Blood we have been washed, and redeemed for all sin forever.The penalty for sin has been paid on the cross. We now have received the Righteousness of Jesus Christ if we believe. I believe that I am saved and Jesus will raise me up the last day. Praise the Lord!!
