Romans 10:13

"Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved." (NASB)


"Whoever will call upon (epikaleomai: appeal unto, cry out, summon, invoke, call upon for one's self; call upon by pronouncing the name of Jehovah) the name of the Lord (kurios: he to whom a person or thing belongs, about which he has power of deciding; master, lord, possessor, owner; one who has control of the person, the master) will be saved (sozo: made whole, healed, kept safe and sound, rescued from danger or destruction)."


Anyone who cries out to invoke the Lord for himself and surrenders his life for Him to become his Master will be made whole, well, healed, kept safe and sound and rescued from danger and destruction.


If we only understood the depth of our salvation! Thousands, if not more Christians have no concept or understanding of the meaning of salvation given to us by Jesus. He did not come for us to recite a prayer and then go about our business. His salvation changes everything within us and entirely rearranges our future… if we understand what really takes place. I am "saved" when, each day, I call upon Him and make Him Lord of my life. Today, take time to look into what Jesus has truly done for you at salvation. See how deep and how wide it really is.
