The Call to Salvation

Romans 10:5-21                    June 21, 2015                   Link for audio/video/manuscript

The Israelites had been separated from God because they continued to hold to the view that their relationship with God was based on their keeping the Law of God rather than putting their faith in Jesus. But Paul put that view to rest by declaring that the goal of God’s law from beginning to end was that Jesus would fulfill the requirements of the law. In Christ God has chosen to grant salvation to those beyond the Jews and include Gentiles as well into God’s eternal family – so that “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” There is nothing more important than salvation in Jesus Christ!
