Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer.. is that you may be saved.
You did not know the righteousness of God and therefore sought to establish your own way.
You did not submit to God’s righteousness.
Understand that Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the message concerning faith that we as Saints proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
