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.

    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!"
