If you confess with your lips that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
The word of God is on our lips and in our hearts, and so anyone who confesses that Jesus is Lord and believes that God raised Him from the dead will be saved.
Our confession with the lips and our heart belief will save us. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Who will hear if there is no preaching? Who will call on His name if they do not know there is a name to be believed? This means that we must go out from the church and preach the message of salvation.
The Good News is remarkably simple. To be saved I must speak out with my lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that He is risen.
We have a Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He must be the one I follow and obey in everything I do.
Jesus’ lordship is not a religious phrase with no meaning. It rests on a historical fact- Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead. He was dead and now He is alive.
There is salvation in the name of Jesus.
There is forgiveness in the name of Jesus.
There is healing in the name of Jesus.
There is power in the name of Jesus.
Lord Jesus, today I declare you are my Lord. I say this not from empty religion but from the deep conviction of my heart. I thank you for dying for my sin and for rising to eternal life. Amen.
