Finally Paul explains how righteousness can be received.
[But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach)…]
…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.
Paul is careful to link the mouth and the heart. Words come easily, but without substance words have no lasting value.
To confess is a public declaration of an inward determination of faith, a faith that has a total impact of a person’s mind, will and emotions.
Therefore, Paul is very concerned with the content of faith.
PRAY FOR ALL ISRAEL TO CONFESS AND BELIEVE YESHUA IS LORD!
