Romans 10:12-13

Romans 10:12-13

For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him.

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Salvation is available to all people. The Gospel message is for everyone. There is no distinction between nationality or social status, no distinction between wealth or age, no distinction between gender or social status. The Gospel is a message for all people.

During the time when this was written (and to a large extent today as well) there are many things that divided people. People were divided by nationality and by social status. They were divided by education level and wealth. The Gospel of Jesus spans across all of these and reaches into the king’s courts and the pauper’s rags. The Gospel of Jesus is for all of us.

The promise of the Gospel is simple, Jesus Saves! He saves us from our sins and He gives us forgiveness and communion with God. Imagine, through the sacrifice that Jesus offered, we can come to the God of the universe, the creator with all of our cares in this life. 1 Peter 5:7 tells us to, “Cast [ing] all of your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
