Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

…that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. – Rom 10:9-10

The Gospel is so simple! Jesus already demonstrated exactly what God requires. No one has to ascend to Heaven to ask God what He needs from us (v 6); and no one has to descend to Hell to figure out how to conquer death (v 7). Jesus already did all that! He took on the punishment we deserve, so that we can inherit the eternal reward He earned!

Jesus finished the hard work so you and I can know exactly what God requires: belief in your heart, and confession from your mouth. Righteousness comes through belief, and salvation comes through confession. When you believe Jesus with your heart, and confess Him with your mouth, you will be saved!


Father, thank You that faith is so simple. I believe Jesus with all my heart. I’m going to tell everyone about Him, everywhere I go!
