But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,"a1 that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming:
That if you confess2 with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord,"3 and believe4 in your heart that God raised him from the dead,5 you will be saved.610
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."b712
For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile8--the same Lord is Lord of all9 and richly blesses all who call on him,
for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord10 will be saved."c1114
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?
