CONFESS WITH OUR MOUTHS
Paul is writing to believers in Romans. In Romans 9:25, he quotes Hosea 2:23 stating that God is calling those who aren’t His people to Him. Paul is telling the Gentiles that because they believe by faith that they will enter the kingdom of God. For it is by faith, not works, that we are saved. Jesus came to save all mankind, not just the Jews. We are saved by faith in Jesus and not by works or anything we can do. We are saved by the righteousness of Christ alone. We must confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead to be saved.
