Faith that Saves
“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)
Saving faith goes in your life from hearing the gospel and out to others by confessing the gospel. You can not live as a follower of Jesus Christ by containing any type of private belief no more than one can get legally married and expect to keep it private. It is in confessing Christ as our personal Lord and Savior that we personally partake in a faith that saves.
There can be no denial through conversations or behavior if the Savior is Lord of your life. You can not hide the light from being seen and not be surprised when the lack of oxygen sniffs that hidden light out.
Let’s pray today for opportunities to confess our faith in Jesus before others.
