Romans 10:1-15
Brothers and sisters, my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.
2 I can testify that they have a zeal for God, but it is not enlightened.
3 For, being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking to establish their own, they
have not submitted to God's righteousness.
4 For Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
5 Moses writes concerning the righteousness that comes from the law, that "the person who does these
things will live by them."
6 But the righteousness that comes from faith says, "Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into
heaven?'" (that is, to bring Christ down)
7 "or 'Who will descend into the abyss?'" (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith that
we proclaim);
9 because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from
the dead, you will be saved.
10 For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved.
11 The scripture says, "No one who believes in him will be put to shame."
12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who
call on him.
13 For, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
14 But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of
whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him?
15 And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of
those who bring good news!"
