Under Gods Command

Romans 10:8-13 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming;

That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trust in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile-the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord, will be saved.

Have you ever been asked, “How do I become a Christian?” These verses give you the beautiful answer-salvation is as close as your own mouth and heart. People think it must be a complicated process, but it is not. If we believe in our hearts and say with our mouths that Christ is the risen Lord, we will be saved.

Lets Bring it home: Are the Churches making this a difficult process by having people think they have to come up front in order to be saved? Are we making in difficult by telling people that you have to ask forgiveness for your sins? I don’t see anywhere that you have to come up front in the Church to be saved. I don’t see anywhere that you have to say with your mouth that you have to ask God to forgive you for your sins in order to be saved. Are we the ones who are making it complicated?
