The Secret to Enjoying Christ’s Redemption, Salvation, and All His Riches

Romans 10:12b-13—“For the same Lord is Lord of all and rich to all who call upon Him; for ‘whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’”

Note 1 on calls says: “Calling on the name of the Lord is the secret not only to our salvation but also to our enjoyment of the Lord’s riches. Beginning with Enosh, the third generation of mankind, and continuing all the way down to the New Testament believers, God’s chosen and redeemed ones enjoyed Christ’s redemption and salvation and all His riches by means of this secret (see note 211 in Acts 2).”

Cross-reference “d” on call directs us to the following verses:

1 Corinthians 1:2: “To the church of God which is in Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, the called saints, with all those who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, who is theirs and ours.”

2 Timothy 2:22: “But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

Deuteronomy 4:7: “For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as Jehovah our God is whenever we call upon Him?”

Psalm 116:17: “To You I will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and I will call upon the name of Jehovah.”

Psalm 145:18: “Jehovah is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.”

Isaiah 55:6: “Seek Jehovah while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near.”

Lamentations 3:55-57: “I called upon Your name, O Jehovah, from the lowest pit. You have heard my voice; do not hide Your ear at my breathing, at my cry. You drew near in the day that I called upon You; You said, Do not fear.”
