Summary of passage: Everyone who believes in Christ will be saved.
12) Part personal Question. My answer: Your heart is where your treasure is. The Holy Spirit is within the heart and the heart leads to the words you speak. My heart is growing and expanding in His ways, not mine. I’m becoming kinder, gentler, and more compassionate to all those around me.
13) Everyone who trusts in the Lord will be saved and will have their guilt/shame washed away forever. Salvation is for all those who believe in Christ.
14) Personal Question. My answer: As a child. As an adult. I thank him continually for my saved state and pray for others to find the same.
Conclusions: Not a lot to work with here. In essence, believe with all your heart in Christ and what he has done for you and you will be saved.
End Notes: Belief and confession result in righteousness and salvation. Paul states once again to be clear: this is open to all despite nationality.
We must call on Him. Again, note the emphasis on human responsibility. From Romans 9 alone we might think that salvation is God’s doing, but from Romans 10 we might think that salvation is man’s doing – together we see the matter from each perspective.
