Romans Chapter 10

In Romans,  Paul is writing to the church in Rome where he had planned to travel.  Chapter 10 expresses his heart’s desire and prayer for the Israelites that they may be saved.  But he is concerned that they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself.  They are still all about the law.  They just don’t get that Christ has accomplished the purpose for which the law was given.  This chapter reflects the gospel perfectly in verses 9-11.  “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God and it is openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”  This salvation is for everyone as reflected in verse 13.  “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  It’s our job now to tell of the Good News!  “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good new”.  I want beautiful feet.  Do you?
