I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday! There is no bible study tonight. :(
The first part of Romans 10 talks about how the people did not understand God's way. They tried to reach God by following his law. Then it says: For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God. (Romans 10:4 NLT). This verse is talking about how because Jesus came and died on the cross for us we don't have to follow the law. Now we just have to accepted Jesus and we will be forgiven and we will spend forever with him in heaven.
Then it stars talking about how to get saved. It says: 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) For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. (Romans 10:9-10 NLT). Then it starts talking about how we must go out and spread the word about Jesus and what he did for us. Some people may not receive the message the first time, maybe not even the third or forth time. It's all right though because it says: And later Isaiah spoke boldly for God, saying, "I was found by people who were not looking for me. I showed myself to those who were not asking for me." (Romans 10: 20 NLT). I think that this verse is talking about how when we open our self's up to God we will find that everything will work out because we will be able to trust God.
