“For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God” (Romans 10:4 NLT).

CHRIST IS THE CONSUMMATION OF THE LAW (Or how Christ is God’s “10-4” to us)

If God’s law cannot save, what good is it? There are at least three good purposes for God’s law and they all point to Christ:
1) Reflect our guilty condition (Like a Perfect mirror).

2) Restrain our sinful behavior (Like a Prison guard).

3) Reveal our need for a Savior (Like a Pedagogue).

So, the law is good and useful, but it cannot save. Only faith in Christ saves and empowers us to produce a harvest of righteousness in His name. For Christ is the end goal of the law.
In CB parlance, “Ten-Four” means, “affirmative, yes.” In God’s Word, Romans “10:4” says that Christ is God’s “yes” to those that believe.
PRAYER: Father, thank You that Jesus is the answer to our sin problem. For Christ has paid the price that the law required on our behalf. Hallelujah! Christ has set us free from the law of sin and death. Christ Jesus is our righteousness, making us right with You, Father, so that we have become Your children. Now, help us to walk in the freedom of Your Spirit today, no longer under the law but under grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.

“For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God” (Romans 10:4 NLT).

Romans chapter 9 explained how God chose the Jews according to His own mercy and divine will, not according to any willing or working on their parts (Rom. 9:16). Now in chapter 10, Paul explains that even though God had selected the Jews to receive His law, and even more, that they were selected to be the people to which the Promised Seed, Jesus Christ, was given, this special selection of God did not negate the requirement that they must believe in Christ in order to be saved. Their selection did not negate their responsibility to believe.
Now everyone, whether Jew or Gentile, can be made right with God through faith in Christ Jesus, His Son.

“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you” (Psalm 20:1 NKJV).

Is anyone in trouble? Call on the Lord. But by what name should one call? Call out to Jesus. “For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Act 4:12). For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13).

“Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.” (Romans 10:1 ESV)

Paul continued to express his desire that the Jewish people believe in Christ for their salvation. This was his constant prayer. Do you know someone that needs the Lord for which you are moved in such a way? Have you considered praying for an unreached people group that has never heard the gospel? You can find a list here:

“So they taught in Judah, and had the Book of the Law of the Lord with them; they went throughout all the cities of Judah and taught the people” (2 Chronicles 17:9 NKJV)

King Jehoshaphat began his reign well by sending out teachers of God’s Word to teach all the people of Judah. Jehoshaphat took delight in the Lord and led his people to follow Him. And so, the fear of the Lord fell on the surrounding peoples so that they didn’t attack Judah, but instead brought tribute and gifts. How important it is for a leader (king, president, pastor, or parent) to teach those under their care the Word of God. A nation or family grounded in God’s Word will prosper. One that departs from it will end up like King Ahab who did not heed the Word of the Lord.

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)

From: July 26, 2012

This salvation has immediate, ongoing, and future implication. You are saved from sin’s penalty (Justification). You are being saved from sin’s power (Sanctification). You will be saved from sin’s presence (Glorification). Salvation in Christ is whole and complete. He saves to the uttermost. Have you yet trusted Jesus as the Resurrected Lord and Savior of your life?

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13)

From: July 26, 2011

Call on Jesus. Confess Him as Lord over every aspect of your life. Believe in His sacrificial death and resurrection. And be saved. Saved from the bondage of sin and the wages of sin, which is death. He has been calling you. Have you called back?
