“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith
that we proclaim); because, 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. For with
the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is
saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to
shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is
Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on
the name of the Lord will be saved.”
P: This is the Word of the Lord.
C: Thanks be to God.
