9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
With the beginning of the new year, we tend to make all kinds of resolutions and set goals for the year but for some of us, the most important goal to make has not been made. Do you know where you will spend eternity? Do you know where your soul will go after you die. Are you living in the bondage of sin and death or are you walking in the confidence that you are free!
The Bible tells us that we must believe in our hearts AND confess with our mouths that Jesus died and rose again and that He is the Son of God, then we shall be saved. Jesus came down to this earth as a man to give His life that we may have eternal life with Him and God. By the shedding of His Holy Blood are we washed and made clean from sin. And only by accepting this most precious of gifts can we ever hope to get to Heaven. Romans 10:9-11 tells us this. It is the most basic of instructions on how to be saved. It is not difficult to do. Just open up your heart and ask Jesus to come in. He is always standing at the door, waiting for you to let Him in. He will not force Himself into your life. As freely as He give His life for you, you have to just as freely accept Him. And there is no other way to be saved. The Bible also tells us:
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Act 4:12
Jesus is the only way. The One and Only way to have a relationship with our Most Holy Father God.
When we stand before God on Judgment Day, we you stand in the confidence that you will be welcomed bu God the Father or will you be ashamed that you never accepted His Son as your Lord and Savior? The choice is yours.
