Sermon Notes

We Engage the Nations


Romans 10:9-1


…because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”


 


How is a person saved?


 


“…if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” 10:9


 


CONFESSION – FOR THE WITH MOUTH ONE CONFESSES JESUS IS LORD


 


BELIEF – FOR WITH THE HEART ONE BELIEVES GOD RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD


 


What are the results of salvation?


 


For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him.


 


JUSTIFICATION – “FOR WITH THE HEART ONE BELIEVES AND IS JUSTIFIED”


 


RESCUE – “AND WITH THE MOUTH ONE CONFESSES AND IS SAVED”


 


ACCEPTANCE – “WHOEVER BELIEVES WILL NOT PUT TO SHAME”


 


Why has everyone not been saved? v. 14,15


 


How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?


 


Pastor Lance Michaels - “The problem is not God’s unwillingness to save; it’s our unwillingness to go.”


 


Acts 1:8 … you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”


 


Matthew 28:19,20 “Go … make disciples of all nations…”
