Paul writes, As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him (Jesus) will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile (everyone else)—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 (Jesus) will be saved.” Romans 10:10-13
Jesus prayed, Sanctify them (set believers apart) by the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (who share the “good news” about Jesus) Romans 10:11-15
But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified,(made right with God) and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:8-10
Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth (revealed in the Scriptures) so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,“All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” 1 Peter 1:22-25a
Nuggets of Wisdom … spread the Word
My name is Mark Horowitz. Throughout my childhood and adolescence, I believed there was a God, but never understood or knew Him. Being raised in a non-religious Jewish home, I lived my life without ever recognizing I was a sinner and that the forgiveness and love of God was something needed and available to me. I always thought I was a “good person” and that would be good enough to get into Heaven, especially being Jewish. After I got married, my wife Sharel started reading the Bible. She was so excited about what she was learning. Every day she tried relentlessly to get me to read the Word with her. I wanted to have nothing to do with it. I was hostile to anything that had to do with Jesus Christ. After hearing her say, "why don’t I believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah?" I asked myself that very question. Was it because of my Jewish upbringing? I wondered if there is more to this than what I perceived. I started reading the Bible on my own personal journey of truth finding prophecies of the Messiah in the Old Testament, then reading their fulfillment in the New Testament. More and more God revealed his truth to me. In 1992, at the age of thirty seven, I asked Jesus into my heart as my Lord and Savior. By his grace I am able to share his word with others. The Lord has given me a ministry to spread the Word of God through the Internet using “Biblestuph.com” I started putting selected scriptures together every week with a theme so that believers and nonbelievers could grow in the knowledge of God. I know that the Word of God is vital for salvation and spiritual growth.
