We listened in Romans 10:5-8, as the Apostle Paul once again highlighted the difference between the righteousness which is by the law and the righteousness which is by faith. To do this, Paul gave a voice to both the righteousness from the Law and the righteousness by faith. He noted that the righteousness which is by the Law teaches "do this and you shall live." The problem is that no one can do it because they start out with three strikes against them. Paul then allowed the righteousness through faith speak. God is not hiding His truth. God does not require us to do the Law. We need to just believe. "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart' that is, the word of faith that we preach" (v.8) What exactly is this "word of faith?" Paul told us in the next verses in Romans 10. First, Paul told us about the content of saving faith, and then he described the character of saving faith.
I. THE CONTENT OF SAVING FAITH (v. 9-10)
II. THE NATURE OF SAVING FAITH (v. 11-13)
