“As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on Him."
As I was reading this today I was led to write and share. When we see the incredible love God has for us it is amazing to see that Pauls shares "He gives generously to all who call on Him." When we call on Him, not when we just wait for Him, when we call on Him we will know Him and we can shine like Christ because calling on Him will prepare us for life. Verse 13 goes on to say, “For Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.” We can't make it hard, but we need to understand that we need to call on Jesus. We all have a job to do and that job is to keep sharing Christ with everyone and living the way He would so people can see Him in us.
Really look at this next verse and see how our action is what God is using to make a difference in this world for the Kingdom of God. Romans 10:14 “But how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him? And how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them?” We need to study Him and believe what we are studying so we can opening share the Good News to the world. We need to remember it is not our job to force people to accept Jesus, it is our job to plant seeds and water the seed so we can't get down or try and force people to this point, we can only show them love and the example by our actions. Verse 16 says, “But not everyone welcomes the Good News, for Isaiah the prophet said, “ LORD, who has believed our message?” So keep sharing and keep shining because it is important for the Good News to be heard always because look what it says in verse 17, “So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.” We need to remember that the free gift of salvation through the Christ is for everyone and we have a purpose to help people get that gift and it will take continual growth so we can keep reaching new people. Amen
