Salvation

Salvation

Because faith ordinarily comes by hearing the good news (Rom 10:17), you and I need to be always ready to give an answer to everyone who asks us, “What must I do to be saved?” But we also need to be ready to share that answer with others even when they do not directly ask for it. That answer must lie at the heart of the message that we communicate to others, because it is the means that God generally uses to bring them to faith in Christ. There is perhaps no clearer answer to the question than the one the Apostle Paul provides in Romans 10:8-13. Here, Paul says that our salvation is not actually about our doing anything – as it is under the law (Rom 10:5); rather, our salvation is about our believing.
