Daily Bible Nugget #79, Romans 10:13

The Nugget:

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

My Comment:

Very plain as to what one must do to be saved. The message of the Bible on the theme of salvation can be understood by anyone. Memorizing the verses about the plan of salvation I have been sharing should help you to explain to others how to be saved. For any who read here, should it happen that you are not saved, these verses should be of help to let you know what to do to be saved. Notice we do not earn salvation by being good enough. We do not earn salvation by doing good works. We receive salvation by asking for it by calling on the name of the Lord for Him to save us from our sin. He is eager to do that, patiently waiting our call to Him.

For those who desire to DIG DEEPER into this subject:

(1) Consult the cross references given in Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible on page 1290 for Ro 10:13.

(2) Consult the cross references given in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 1311 or in Logos 5 Bible software for Romans 10:13.

(3) Lacking access to those two resources, consult the cross references for this passage as I have developed them as given below:

Romans 10:13. whosoever. Ro 3:30. Nu 21:8, 9. Is 45:22. *55:1. Jl >2:32. Mt 11:28-30. Lk 12:8. Jn 3:16. 4:14. Ac 2:21. 10:35, 43. 11:18. 2 P +*3:9. 1 J +*2:2. 5:1. Re *3:20. *22:17. shall call. or, may call. May call translates epikalesētai, an aorist tense middle voice subjunctive mood verb. The subjunctive is a potential mood and so conditional—may call or may not call; if they do call they will be saved. Further, one potentially calls for himself/herself since epikalesētai is also in the middle voice. This shows the participation of the subject in the action. Thus salvation is for the masses of humankind, but they respond to God individually, conditionally—may respond (Lavender NT, fn e). Ge 4:26. 2 S 22:4. Ps +*50:15. 86:5. 91:15. 105:1. Is **55:6, 7. Je *33:3. Zc 13:9. Mt 15:21-28. Ac +*2:21. +*7:59. 1 C *1:2. the name. To call upon the Name of the Lord implies right faith about Him, as the Object of worship (Liddon). Ge 12:8. 1 K 18:24. Ac +2:21, 38. shall be saved. ver. **9, **10. Mt 19:25. Jn **11:25, 26. Ac **4:12. **16:30-32. 1 Th 2:16. 2 Th 2:10. 1 T +*2:4. 1 J **5:10-13.

    psm 119.97 oh, how love i the law! it is my meditation all the day

    rom 10.13 for whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall
    be saved.

    joel 2.32 and it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the
    name of the lord shall be delivered: for in mt zion and in jerusalem
    shall be deliverance, as the lord hath said, and in the remnant whom
    the lord shall call.

    one could scarcely wish for a simpler statement of the way of salvation
    than is found in these words: vs 10.13 ours is a hope that will never be

    psm 46.1 god is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble.
