For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”” (Romans 10:13, ESV)

I love the simplicity of this promise.  There are some passages of Scripture that are hard to understand; some that are confusing; some that make little sense from a cultural distance of 2000 years, this is not one of those passages.

Call.  Be saved.  The simple gospel, which we are sometimes prone to make overly complicated and fill up with all sorts of addendums, ifs, ands, or buts.  Thankfully, Paul did not do this when it came to the message of the good news of Jesus Christ.  The one who calls upon the name of the Lord?  That one will be saved.

Yes, this means even you, dear reader.
