A confession of faith
notes
Main point summary
The Torah tells us of the two ways to be righteous: perfect, personal obedience to God or responding to the word in your mouth and heart—the word of justification in Jesus to all who believe.
Bible study outline
A walk through Romans 10:5-13. The big idea of this passage is righteousness. See verses 5-6. There are two ways to obtain righteousness —one through the law (i.e. being perfect) and one through faith (believing in the one who lived perfectly for me). The lie is to say there is a third way—righteousness through a decent life. “What about a good person who never hears about Jesus?” Heard this? What is the answer? (There is no such person!) And let us be careful! There are many “believers” who in reality seek righteousness through good works. Don't be one because there is no third category. Note: Vs 5 is not talking about the book of the Law (i.e. the Torah). This is clear from the fact that verse 6 goes on to quote from the Torah as a basis for the righteousness based on faith! Notice the excuses for unbelief. “Its far away!” “It is beyond my understanding.” (It is simple enough for a child to understand.) “I have never had the chance to hear it.” (You are hearing it now.) “It is too spiritual for me.” (Its spirituality is to make up for your lack of genuine spirituality—that's the point!) “We can never know who God is or even if he exists.” (He has told us who he is and you know it is true by the way it pierces your heart.) There are two contradictory points present in virtually every religion. The person who wants to be righteous must obey all God's commands. There are righteous people who have not obeyed all God's commands. These two point are also found in the Bible. The difference is that only the Bible provides a third point that nullifies the contradiction. Jesus obeyed all God's commands and gives us his righteousness. It is the great exchange. Christ has born the punishment of our unrighteousness and we receive the reward of his righteousness. Our faith is ultimately in a Person. Verses 6-7 make this clear (along with 9a). And this includes faith in what this Person has done (9b). What are we saved from (vs 9)? guilt shame wrath destruction ... Why does the condition involve both mouth and heart? Are there actually two conditions for salvation? Can the mute not be saved? There are three ways humans function. We love, rejoice, believe, etc in our hearts. We communicate, most often with our mouths. And we act through deeds. Paul is jealous to help us understand that we receive God grace and salvation on the basis of that first, heart reality, and in no way on the basis of the last reality of deeds. But what about the reality of our words? [[ Read through cross-reference texts. ]] Confession is a partner to the love, joy and faith in our hearts. For communication is the overflow of the heart. Certainly there will be those who confess without sincere faith (Matt 7:21-23), but there will never be a person who truly believes but never confesses Christ. There are two clarifications of verse 9 that we must understand to understand this verse right: God makes sinners righteous through faith (accompanied by confession) alone. God freely gives the riches of righteousness and salvation irrespective of pedigree.

that the person who does the commandments shall live by them.

But the righteousness based on faith says,

“Do not say in your heart,

‘Who will ascend into heaven?’”

42 Nevertheless, v many even of the authorities believed in him, but w for fear of the Pharisees they did not x confess it, so that they would not be x put out of the synagogue; 43 y for they loved the glory that comes from man more than the glory that comes from God.
