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

The notion of calling on the name of the Lord is seen many times throughout the Bible.  Psalm 105:1 says, “Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name.”  On the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:21), Peter quoted Joel 2:32 when he said, “And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  But while there is promise for all in the gift of salvation…the responsibility still remains with us to make the initial move towards God.  It’s called free will…for we have to choose to either do God’s will or our own.  Jesus talked about this in John 7:17 as He was teaching in the Temple courts, “If anyone chooses to do God’s will…”  The promise of salvation is there for anyone to take advantage of, but it requires a decision…a choice to seek God and call upon His name.
