The Law of Victory: Part 14
How to Be Saved-Romans 10:8-17
In his earlier days, Paul believed personal victory came through self-righteousness. By the time he wrote to the Romans, he understood that the only way to gain victory came through God’s righteousness.
How can one be saved from God just condemnation? Paul explains the answer in Romans 10: “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved,” he says (v. 9).
In a sense, this chapter provides the climax to the dilemma building through the book’s first nine chapters. Only after thoroughly explaining the problem does the apostle lay out the plan to find and experience victory. Leaders always progress toward solutions.
Paul Closes with Hope-1 Corinthians 15:1-9, 57, 58
Like any good leader, Paul closes his letter by reminding his friends of the absolute victory of their cause. Paul fuels their convictions to stay the course and fulfill their mission (1 Cor. 15:57, 58). Leaders find a way for the team to win, then use past victories to build future ones.
