For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:12-13)
The call is to everyone, Jew and Gentile alike. The call is to you. If you will come today, the Bible says, “Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.” Do you hear his call to you? Are you willing to respond to it? Are you willing to call on the name of the Lord and be saved? You have an opportunity to make a commitment to Christ today. You have an opportunity to respond to him by calling on his name in prayer and surrendering your life to him today. If you do so, you will be, not might be, but will be saved. That is the clear promise of his Word.
There is only one way to heaven. It is not the way of human effort. It is the way of responding to his divine initiative. It is the way of a personal relationship with the living Lord Jesus Christ. It is the way of surrender. Quit trying and start trusting in him today!
One of the benefits—and one of the problems—in our contemporary society, is we have so much more information available to us than any other age in history. We truly live in the information age and travel on the information highway. However, having the information available, even examining the information personally, does not mean that we will understand that information or personally profit by it. You can sit in a library and stay uneducated. Being around information does not mean that you acquire it for yourself.
This is the case for so many when it comes to the message of Christ. There has never been an age in the history of humankind where the message of Christ has been as readily available as our age, yet millions of people have not grasped its truth for themselves. It is not enough to be exposed to the truth. You must receive the truth. You must apply the truth to your life. You must live by the truth.
Over the ages, God has been reaching out to people with the message of grace in Jesus Christ that sets people free. This letter describes how he has made it possible for us to believe. We have seen the extent to which God has gone to reach out to us.
