Salvation received by faith of the heart


“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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:9-10

Salvation is not through the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ. If you confess the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that He died for your sins and rose again in victory, you will be saved. Why? Because God justifies and counts righteous those who trust in Christ and His atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world, and those who believe in their hearts confess their faith with their lips.

Dear Lord Jesus Christ, thank You for bearing upon the cross the just punishment for my sins and rising again in victory. Grant that I always trust in You with my heart and confess You with my lips. Amen.
