If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10
Noticing the importance of declaring Jesus is Lord, when Jesus was on trial with Pontius Pilate he was asked “Are you the King of the Jews?” Jesus replied “Are you asking?” Jesus wanted to know who Pilate believed Jesus was, who was he confessing he was with his mouth. Same when Jesus was with his disciples he asked them, who do you think I am? He wanted to see who they confessed him to be before others.
The second thing you notice about this scripture is the importance of the resurrection. We all know the story of Christ Risen on Easter Sunday, but what do you really believe in your heart? Do you really believe Christ was physically raised from the dead? As Paul taught without the resurrection, Christianity is pointless.
As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame. For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile–the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:11-13
God will never leave us or forsake us. We may go thru trials but we can put our trust in Him. But the important thing to notice that the scripture says “Anyone” who believes and “Everyone” who calls on The Lord.
This is important to understand the new covenant created by Jesus at the cross, we are all now Children of God through the blood of Jesus. We can all inherit the Kingdom of God through Christ. Believe in your hearts and declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and He is Risen Amen
