Lesson Scriptures: Romans 10:9-17
Key Lesson Theme: “Committed to His Mission”
Today's Lesson: Wednesday, November 25
11 For the Scripture says, Everyone who believes on him will not be put to shame,
12 since there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, because the same Lord of all richly blesses all who call on him.
13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Taken together, these verses affirm the universal nature of the gospel. Everyone has the same need; everyone is invited to come on the same terms; and everyone who comes receives the same outcome. Paul supported his message by appealing to Scripture.
The Lord does not vary His response on the basis of who a person is or where he came from. Paul had established earlier in the letter that all have sinned (3:22-23), God provided a Savior (5:6-11), and that salvation is effective by believing that the Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ (10:9-10). None of that varies by being a Jew or a Greek (a non-Jew). Jew and Greek alike can expect the same response from the Lord because He is the same Lord over all. “For the same Lord is Lord of all” (ESV). He is no regional deity. He does not relate to one people one way and to another people another way. Who He is, is who He is. He does not change or waver (Heb. 13:8; Jas. 1:17).
“God proves His trustworthiness by delivering from their bondage to sin and rebellion all who call upon Him in the trust that He is trustworthy and He will maintain them in His love.”
What are some lasting truths from Romans 10:11-13?
>All are in need of a Savior for all have sinned.
>The Lord is no respecter of persons; that is, He shows no favoritism; He is impartial.
>Everyone who calls on the Lord in faith believing shall be saved
Until tomorrow Saints...
