If we are saved by grace so that we cannot do anything to earn our salvation, why does Paul seem to say in Romans 10:9-10 that if we confess and believe then we will be saved? Do these verses contradict other grace-only verses? Is confessing and believing really a “work” in the first place? Join us as we continue our study on grace by taking a look at just what is meant when we are told we must respond to the Gospel.
