Romans chapter 10 Verse 8 says: “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach”
You frame your life with word. The word of Salvation, and the word that brings you help is right inside your mouth, but what does it say, he says the word is near you, It is even in your mouth and in your heart, That is, the word of faith which we preach, then he explains it, the next verse “that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus” did you notice that? “That if you would confess with your mouth…” To confess Jesus means to declare Jesus, to affirm Jesus into your life.The Bible says, “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9). To confess the Lord Jesus means; to declare, affirm, confess Jesus as Lord with your mouth. If you would declare that Jesus is Lord of your life, believing in your heart that He saved you. You will be saved the Bible way.
A lot of people have been trying for so long to be saved, it didn't work out so they went back to sin; they tried to serve God, It didn't work, so they went back to sin; That’s because they didn't do what God said, God said if you would declare confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord of your life believing in your heart that God raised him from the dead, He says that salvation is for you, and once you have done that you don't say okay now so I believe in my heart and I confess that Jesus is Lord, so I'm waiting for salvation, No, he says if you do that salvation is the result it Says thou shalt be saved.
