NO LOOP HOLE
I often hear people say that they like to keep their faith personal. They don’t like to talk about it. However, that is not biblical. Did you realize that our Christianity is a confession? 1 Timothy 6;12; (Hebrews 4;14; and 10:23).
We are born again into God’s family by believing and confessing. Romans 10:9, 10 says: “That 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.” If we believe in our hearts only, we are only half saved. To truly receive salvation, we must believe and CONFESS.
This is the beginning. But this is how we continue our walk with Christ. We keep on confessing. It is not a one-time confession, but a daily confession of our salvation. A daily confession of God’s truth. It’s only what we confess that we keep.
I was challenged by reading Isaiah 48:20 (CEB): “Go out from Babylon; flee from the Chaldeans!
REPORT this with a loud shout,
BROADCAST it to the end of the earth. (the whole world)
SAY, ‘The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob!’”
God doesn’t tell us only once to share about our redemption, but in four different ways in one Scripture. He doesn’t give us a loop hole to be silent! He wants us to broadcast His truth through the whole earth. God miraculously redeemed Israel from the hand of Pharaoh. He miraculously delivered them from Babylon. But we have an even greater redemption.
What a wonderful redemption!
Never can a mortal know
How my sin, the' red like crimson,
Can be whiter than the snow.
Ephesians 2:7 tells us that it will take “the ages to come” to “show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”
Are you confessing every day? Are you teaching your children how to be confessing Christians? If not, we are not teaching them correctly. If they are not confessing, they will grow up weak in the faith.
Be blessed today,
