Our Christian walk is not only believing in Jesus Christ, but confessing that He is our Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9-10). We are born again by believing and confessing. And now this is the way we continue to walk in Christ. Every new understanding of truth we believe as we read the Word of God, we must also confess.

Hebrews 10:35 says, "Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward." The Greek word for "confidence" is "parrhesia" and actually means "all out-spokenness--frankness, bluntness, publically and boldly speaking, assurance." We do not hide our salvation; we proclaim it. We do not hide the truth God reveals to us; we boldly speak it out, even in the face of ridicule and resistance from family and those around us.

Confession keeps our faith real. Confession keeps truth vibrant in our hearts. The more you share the truth with others, the more it becomes part of your life.

This same word is used of Jesus, the early disciples, and of Paul speaking boldly. Paul and Barnabas "waxed bold" in the midst of people "contradicting and blaspheming" them (Acts 13:45-46). It was because Jesus spoke boldly that He came from God and was one with God that they crucified Him!

Our confession may get us into trouble, but do we stop confessing? We dare not! I think that now we had better start boldly confessing the truth more than ever, because we don't know how much longer we will be able to do it without real persecution! A new day has dawned in America. It's time to be more radical than ever!
