Open Your Mouth!
Posted: November 18, 2016
So we know that the bible says the tongue can bring death or life, but did you know that part of our salvation is tied to our words?
There’s a common misconception in our culture today that you as long as you believe in Jesus, you will be saved; but the Bible explicitly states that you must declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, in addition to believing in your heart that he rose from the dead. The good news is that the Bible promises when you do those things together (declare with your mouth and believe with your heart) you will be saved.
The Bible also says that we should confess our sins. I don’t know about you, but I want to be forgiven of my sins; so as painful as that might be, that means confessing my sins. The good news is that the Bible promises when we confess our sins to God, he is faithful and just and will forgive us.
Do you want to be forgiven and saved? Open your mouth and start talking!
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
- Romans 10:9 NIV
Lord, I declare that Jesus Christ is Lord of Lords and that he rose from the dead. Thank you that if I confess my sins to you, you promise to be faithful to forgive me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
