A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, May 11


Romans 10:9-17


verses 14-15: How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”


These verses put into words something I have thought a lot about over my lifetime. I have always wondered (and worried) about those who spend their entire lives never hearing about Jesus, through no fault of their own. They may live in a part of the world where the gospel has not been shared. Those who spend their lives sharing the gospel are “beautiful.” I also believe God has a way of reaching everyone at some point before their final moments on earth. Surely God would not withhold the option of eternal life with him. “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Certainly no one is left out, unable to join in this promise, this hope.

Heavenly Father, I am confident you make it possible for all of mankind to know you and to spend eternity with you. I am not at all sure how it is done, but you have let us know you are the God of all. I am thankful and want to be worthy of your love and your promise. Amen

Romans 10: 9-17


9 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. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.


How amazing this is to read. That our salvation is found in Jesus alone and all we need to do is confess and trust what He has done for us. To know that this was enough to save us. This is so simple and yet so profound. It is through this faith that we can stand before God and are forgiven.


Dearest Lord, Jesus…

Romans10:9-17 Verses. 9-10 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. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. It is God alone who knows our heart. It is he alone who knows when we believe in our heart that Christ died for our sins and rose again. And once our decision to trust in Christ for salvation is met, we are immediately born again by the power of the Holy Spirit. Salvation is as close as our own mouth and heart. It is not a complicat…

Romans 10:10 - “For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved.”


The so-called “Enlightenment” and its cult of reason has produced long-lasting damage to the church. Pure reason denies mystery and part of pure faith is mystery. Faith is not about intellectual assent and a technical, scientific “proof“ of God’s existence. It is a heart change that defies explanation. Members of the cult of reason equate this with being irrational, but what is irrational is ignoring the signs of God all around us. Belief is from the heart.


Prayer - God of mystery, may those who do not know You see evidence of Your presence in their life…
