Rom 10:8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”[a] that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim:
The word is near you. It is actually stated more powerfully in the Greek. It is like saying that the word the Lord is speaking to you is near you. These are not just words from the Bible written 1,000s of years ago but the “now” present word of God from his mouth to your ear.
It is in your mouth and in your heart. It is a “now” word from him. This is a “now” close relationship as you continue in his love. This is the Spirit of God working in you and through you. It is alive and working moment by moment as you live in love. This love is in you and flowing through you.
What is he speaking? It is “trust me.” “I love you.” “Love them as I loved you.” “Remember that I am near.” These words and more reside in you to encourage you. They guide you to love and live and wait for the gift of eternal life that he has promise.
He says “I am coming soon!”
