Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Romans 10:9

Have you ever known someone who tried to make salvation a really difficult thing? Maybe they thought they had to be really good to get saved, so they worked really hard for salvation. Perhaps you know someone who doesn’t even realize that heaven and hell are real, so the idea of salvation doesn’t make much sense to them either.

Here’s the thing, the Bible tells us that it’s faith in Jesus that saves us. When we believe in Him, believe that He was raised from the dead, and His life was the payment in full for our sin, and speak it out, that’s when we’re saved.

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. – Romans 10:9 (NIV)

Salvation isn’t difficult to obtain, but it can feel difficult because it’s so easy. It’s easier to not think about eternity and never make a decision for Jesus. It’s easier to try to do lots of good work to earn your salvation.

The Bible shows us, however, that we can’t do enough good to earn heaven. We needed Jesus. And that’s why Jesus came to the earth. To help us in our weaknesses. He did what we couldn’t do.

Today’s Truth: Jesus Did What We Couldn’t Do – He Made us Right With God.

So today, first make sure that you have made a personal decision to follow Jesus. Next, believe that His sacrifice on the cross was sufficient payment for your sin. Then determine to make sure that the people you come into contact with know that too. There are people all around you that might not know that Jesus paid the price so they don’t have to spend eternity separated from Him.
