Application:

1
What is your heart’s desire for the salvation of others?  How is this desire evidenced in your prayer life and service?  To whom are you witnessing and for whom are you praying?
On what is your zeal for God based on?
How would you explain the righteousness of God to a new believer or a skeptic?
How do you/will you submit to the righteousness of God?
Why is Christ the culmination of the law?  Where in Scripture do you find support of this truth?
What does Moses say about the righteousness that is by the law in Romans 10:5-8?  What does his teaching mean to you?
2
How is one saved?  Have you done this?
What role does your heart play in salvation?  What role does your mouth play?
What promise is given to every believer according to Romans 10:11?  How have you experienced this to be true?  What does this mean to you?
3
What is the difference between Jew and Gentile according to Romans 10:12?  What is the relation to the Lord for the Jew and for the Gentile?
According to Romans 10:13, who will be saved?  How will this knowledge change how you pray and share Christ?
What is the process of coming to belief in Christ according to Romans 10:14-15?  Where are you in this cycle of belief?  What will it take to bring you to the next level of the cycle?
Knowing that all Israelites haven’t accepted the good news, how will you pray for and witness to Israelites?
4
How does faith come to us?
What is the message that brings faith?
According to Paul in verse 18, did Israel hear the message?  If that is the case, why isn’t Israel saved according to Scripture?
Was the problem a lack of understanding according to verse 19?
