Romans 10:9-13 (NKJV) 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

The Apostle Paul is talking about more than just a public confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Paul is saying that our confession must be backed up by our lives. What we say with our lips ought to be in harmony with the way we live our lives. It is as the old saying goes, “Walk the talk.” Not just making empty confessions. Many people give lip service to God, but their hearts are far away from God. This is why Paul tells us, “For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:10 NKJV). My friends, when you confess your faith in Christ, make sure your heart is right along with the words you say. Be sure that you are not just saying idle words that mean nothing to you. Your faith must be real. It is as James said, “… faith without works is dead” (James 2:20 NKJV). If you are going to announce your faith with your mouth, be sure that your life is saying the same thing. The death and the resurrection of Christ is the heart of the gospel. Christ “… was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification” (Romans 4:25 NKJV). “Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily”” (Isaiah 28:16 NKJV). All have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. We all need a Savior. We all need Christ. If anyone wants to be saved, then he or she must come to Christ. For, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6 NKJV). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV). My friends, by Grace alone in Christ alone we are saved. God is reconciled because of what the Lord Jesus Christ did for us on the cross on Calvary. And now God is saying to you, “Be reconciled with Me by believing in My Son Jesus Christ.” My friends, do you believe? My friends, “… whoever calls on the Lord Shall be saved …” (Joel 2:32 NKJV). My friends, do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ?

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
