Believing the Word: Confessing Christ!

Scripture reading for June 26th:  Romans 10, Psalm 127, Proverbs 3

Key Scriptures:  Romans 10: 8-11 “But what does it say?  “The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the Word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.  For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame.””

Faith comes by hearing the Word of God concerning Jesus Christ.  When we choose to put our trust in Jesus and His death and resurrection, faith has entered our heart and with our mouths we confess the truth: “Jesus is Lord.”  Everyone who believes is saved on the level ground of faith.  God is impartial and true to His Word!

Faith confession:  I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Christ, Son of God and that He offered His sinless life on the cross for me and for the sins of all the world.  I believe He died and was buried and rose again the third day.  “Jesus is Lord” is my testimony and confession of my mouth.

Faith Confession:  I believe in the One True God, Jesus Christ, Creator of all mankind and my Creator and Father.  I know there is a day of appointed judgment set by God for all mankind.  Without repentance and faith in Jesus no one can stand at the judgment.

Psalm 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him; and He will make straight your paths.”

Humble confession of Faith!

Scripture reading for April 16th:  John 8, Psalm 76, Proverbs 14

Key Scriptures:  John 8:23-25 “He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above.  You are of this world; I am not of this world.  I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am He you will die in your sins.”  So they said to Him, “Who are you?”  Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been telling you from the beginning.” 

Jesus had declared to the Pharisees that He was the “Light of the world.”  They struggled to believe in Him because they were living in the darkness of sin–the sin of unbelief!  Jesus plainly told them that they would die in their sins unless they believed in Him as Messiah.  It is faith in Jesus that alone brings deliverance from death.

Faith Confession:  Jesus, I humbly confess that You are the Son of God, the Light of the world. and the only One who can save me from eternal separation from You.

Psalm 76:8-9 “From the heavens You uttered judgment; the earth feared and was still, when God arose to establish judgment, to save all the humble of the earth.”
