Romans 10:1-21
Paul follows up the discussion in Romans 9 about God’s faithfulness and Israel’s unbelief and talks about what we do need to do to receive the salvation Jesus has accomplished for us: we confess that Jesus is Lord, and we believe with our hearts in his life, death, and resurrection. Since the heart is a token of the whole self, this means we are to trust our whole self to the person and work of Christ as our righteousness. We are to transfer our trust from our own efforts to be righteous to Christ’s righteousness on our behalf. That is the faith that saves.
