June 28/ Romans 10

Verse 1 > Who are you praying for to get saved? Write the names down and stay with it.

Matthew 7:7–8 (NLT) — 7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

Verses 2-4 > Again how are we made right with God? Is it by working > No! Is it by behaving > No! Is it by believing > Yes! Pray that the person you want to get saved will believe.

John 3:16 (NLT) — 16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

You know the old saying, “If it is too good to be true it probably isn’t.” But that isn’t true when it comes to being made right with God. I is just believing in Jesus. Some might say, “Well that’s just too good to be true.” > Wrong!

Verse 5 > Yea, Jesus did this for us!

Verses 6-10 > There it is again > believing. We don’t have to go anywhere to get God just believe. The mouth speaks the faith that is in the heart.

Verses 11-13 > God responds to anyone who calls on the name of Jesus; Anyone! God is the instigator of the come as you are party!

Verses 14-17 > You may have smelly feet, crooked toes, hang nails, ingrown nails, calloused toes, corned toes, fungus under your toenails; but if you bring some on the good news that Jesus saves them from their sin and they receive that message and are made right with God to them you have beautiful feet! In order for a person to have faith in Jesus they have to hear the message about Jesus. Will you tell them?

Verse 20 > Christianity is the only religion where God comes after man. In all the others man is the one doing the searching but as we learned in chapter 3 no one is seeking after God > the God of the bible. The God of the bible, Jehovah comes after people. If you have been made right with God it is only because he came after you. Why not stop and thank him right now. Thank You Father God for coming after me!

Verse 21 > Pray that those who you are praying for to be made right with God would not turn their backs on Him. Pray that they would not cling to their own way of being made right with God. Pray the God would open their eyes to see the truth. Pray that they would hear the message and obey.

    Israel heard the message, and understood the message but we’re disobedient to the message. The message is simple:
    1 believe in Jesus.
    2 proclaim your belief in Jesus.
    3 Walk in your belief.
    It does not take works but as you understand what Jesus did for you then the works tend to follow. The other important lesson from this chapter was looking at the great commission from the other direction. It answers why Jesus gave the great comission. If the world is to know Jesus then the church must send out misionaries.

    Verses5-9 refer to Deuteronomy 11-15. Moses told the Jewish nation that they had a choice. Paul tells us that we have a choice. When we choose to obey we are not doing it because we are “working” for our salvation. We are choosing life over death. Everyday we are confronted with choices and the enemy will always tempt us with very appealing choices. The Holy Spirit gives us discernment to choose God over the idols of this world. When we choose to obey God even though it is hard we choose life!! Thank you Jesus for giving me life!!
