Romans: Day 28

Today's Text: Romans 10:9-10

Memorizing Scripture is one of the best ways to carry God-breathed truth, instruction, and reproof wherever we go.

As we read through Romans together, we are memorizing the steps in the Romans Road to salvation, a concise explanation of the gospel using verses from this epistle. The fourth step shows our response to the solution God provides: confess and believe.

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.
—Romans 10:9-10

Write this passage down and post it on your mirror or at your desk, in your car or on the fridge—anywhere you’ll see it often. Save the image below as your phone’s lock screen so you can read these words of truth throughout the day.

We want to be a community that is intentional about Scripture memorization. Will you join us?

  • This is my first study with SRT. I am impressed beyond belief. My youngest son bought me the SRT bible for Mothers Day. It was on back order so I didn’t get it till a couple weeks later. Once the Bible arrived I decided to try one of the studies and this one was just about to start so I put a rush order in. Well, I have since upgraded to an annual membership. The study guide is just lovely. And connection with all you lovely ladies, well there just are no words to say how I appreciate all your input. The study as a whole is wonderful. I am getting so much out of this. Can’t thank you enough.

    I like looking up Bible commentary for the Weekly Truths, to dig deeper into the text.
    I loved Matthew Henry’s commentary on these verses, I wanted to share it with you all:
    “We must devote and give up to God our souls and our bodies: our souls in believing with the heart, and our bodies in confessing with the mouth. The believer shall never have cause to repent his confident trust in the Lord Jesus. Of such faith no sinner shall be ashamed before God; and he ought to glory in it before men.”

    Believe and speak. I believe. But I must also say it aloud. There is something powerful in opening up our mouths and speaking truth.

  • This is such a beautiful, simple, and powerful verse. I have several young family members (teens/early 20s) that have been struggling with addiction and depression and I know they believe in God, but they have strayed far away….I struggle with the right words to say, even as we are very close, my heart says to have a discussion about Jesus, but the words do not come out. Maybe I have a fear of being mocked, or disregarded, but I clam up and we end up talking about other things. I not only ask for your prayers that these loved ones of mine let Jesus enter their hearts and overcome their addictions, and lead a life of goodness, but also for me, that I can find the right words to connect with them and be their guiding light. Thank you

      I understand where you’re coming from, Jenny. I’ll be praying!

    • Melanie Bisson

      Jenny – I struggle with boldness, too. I have taken small steps such as wearing a shirt with a scripture on it (I love the subscription service called God’s Glory Box) or reading the Bible on the airplane. Once I conquered that, I felt much stronger speaking to friends and family about my walk with Christ and how it’s available for them, too. I pray that you’ll have the words you need, when you need them. May He guide you!!

    Words planted in my heart as a child through a children’s cassette. The vehicle of music can embed the Truth like nothing else for me. Thank God for doing it all and making a way for us.

  • Karen From Virginia

    Such a beautiful truth in performance slanted world. Truth because of what I believe and confess and not because of what I feel. I know I’m saved through faith but too often I let myself believe I’m not okay because of today and ‘not enough ‘ or mistakes. Truth is saved and His. Nothing changes that adoption. His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.

    Believe and confess. Yes. Righteousness and Salvation. Yes. So grateful that I no longer walk under the law of “No” – don’t do this, don’t do that-because I fail every single time. My “Yes” to Jesus has set me free. I’m no longer under the burden of the law but am living free under His abundant grace. And to that I say another “Yes!”

  • I really needed to hear these words this morning. I woke in the night feeling so anxious that I wasn’t ‘doing’ enough to please God (quiet times are rare and I’m not going to church every week- both these unusual for me and not a reflection of lack of faith but just a very busy season of life) but God knows my heart. I love Him so much, Jesus is Lord and I tell everyone I can whenever I can! Yet again my Heavenly Father has provided the comfort that only He can, through His word. Thank you Lord!

    • Renna Nightingale

      Katy, thanks for sharing!! I’ve been feeling similarly… I’m not doing enough. But as I read your comment I was reminded that neither of us can ever do enough! We are measuring by the wrong measure here. I’m praying for his grace and peace for us today, ok? Let’s stand on his truth, and not in our not-enough-ness! :)

    • Jenny

      I am in the exact same boat, Katy! You are not alone in this! I go through periods of attending church every Sunday for months and then life seems to get so crazy busy (especially this time of year) and I let myself slip into missing one week, then two, I now have not been in 2 months and I’m going this morning to get back into routine. With weddings and showers and parties and my husband traveling and working so much and I myself working so much, I let attending church fall by the wayside. I have been so stressed and have so much anxiety lately in so many areas of my life and I know I have to get back to church. It keeps me grounded and my faith strong and I will pray for you today, Katy, that your anxiety diminishes, that you feel worthy and you are doing more than enough, and that you and your loved ones have a blessed week!
