What do You Believe? 4
“In Him, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding.” Ephesians 1:7-8
The creed says, “I believe in one God, I believe in one Jesus Christ, and I believe in the Holy Spirit” This is an excellent way to start your day. It’s easy for you to get caught up with fear and doubt the world profess around you. However, if you declare your faith with conviction in your heart before you go out daily, nothing will terrorize you.
Apostle Paul and Silas were imprisoned for teaching and preaching the gospel in the city of Philippi. While they were in prison, A jailer asked him an important question that would change his life forever: saying, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Act 16:30. The answer apostle Paul gave was simple and clear; “Believe in the Lord Jesus, you and your household will be saved.”
Romans 10:9-10 says, “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with your heart, you will be justified, and your mouth must tell it to others what you believe.” This means your inward confession of your belief in Christ must not be separated from your outward expression of faith.
God cannot accept ‘hide-and-seek’ Christian who believe in their heart but cannot confess with their mouth or vice versa. If you are a believer, then your inner statement should be: I believe in Jesus Christ. Your outward expression is to tell others about your faith, your testimony, and sharing the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 10:32 says, “Therefore everyone who confesses Me before others, I will also confess before My Father, who is in heaven.”
1. Thank God, who gave you Christ, who takes away sin.
2. Every power that is intimidating my faith in Christ, Lord washes them away with the blood of Jesus.
3. Lord Jesus, I believe you as my Lord and savior.
