“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
In this verse we find the simple way of salvation.
This tells us who is eligible.
Whosoever simply means anyone.
No one is disqualified no matter their circumstance.
While anyone is able, there is something that everyone must adhere to in order to receive salvation.
“…shall call upon the name of the Lord…”
We must call upon the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, for it is through Him that salvation is found.
“…shall be saved.”
Salvation is the free gift that we receive when we call upon Him.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 10:13 is a simplification of three previous verses in Chapter 10 which explain what it means to “call upon the name of the Lord.”
“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
When we call upon His Name, we do so by confessing and believing in Him by faith.
It is not a prayer that saves us, but our faith in Jesus Christ and what He has done for us.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Genesis 23-24 | John 12
