Confess with your mouth … Believe in your heart …

“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).

When He’s in your heart, He has to come out. The Saviour is not be kept to ourselves. He’s to be shared with other people. We pray, “Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.” We should, also, pray, “Come out of my heart, Lord Jesus.” This doesn’t mean that we want Him to leave us. It means that we want Him to show Himself to others through our words and actions. We’re not to be silent disciples. We’re to be people to speak up for Jesus, people who let it be known that we belong to Him. We may have been more like the Peter who denied the Lord at the time of His crucifixion. We can become more like the Peter who won so many people for the Lord on the Day of Pentecost. We may wonder, “Can we be changed like Peter was changed? Yes! God can do this for us, in us and through us, if we will say to Him, “Yes, Lord. You know that I love You” (John 21:15-17).
