Saved

 

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. Romans 10:9

That is all God requires of us because He knows we are not capable of much, and He loves us enough to set us up for success.  That is all His Word says if we do this, we shalt be saved.

Everything that is in the Bible, all the rules that people dwell on, study, focus on, try to emulate, and that’s good, we should learn God’s Word…but ALL mean nothing, if, if, if we can’t grasp the full extent of Romans 10:9

Nothing else can save you, nothing.

The only thing, that will save you, God said:

  1. to confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus,
  2. believe it in thine heart that God raised Jesus from the dead.

THOU SHALT BE SAVED. Romans 10:9. Hallelujah!

God doesn’t lie.

If we go ask the One, that we are to confess, our Saviour, our Mediator, that we killed/sacrificed,  and God raised Him back from the dead. Thank you Jesus for Your love for us.

We certainly need it. Thank you God.

Jesus says, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 

This is the first and great commandment. Matthew 22:37-38

If you’ve made it this far into this post, take a pause, and ask yourself, do you have these first 3 steps…what’s the word I’m looking for…. not perfected, because we know we will never be perfected.

Working? Would that be the right word? It doesn’t seem big enough. Nothing ever seems big enough when discussing the Almighty. :)

Do you have these 3 steps working, first nature, like blinking? Especially are you loving God:

with all thy heart….with all thy mind…with all thy soul…?

If not, keep practicing.

You can start practicing the last, and final step that the Word, Jesus, says we must, must, must do. I’m sighing here, because, now we have to deal with our neighbours/brothers/sisters. :):)

We have left the realm of the Almighty and us, and entered into the realm of every body elses free will.

After Jesus said, to love God with every fiber of your being, with every thought, with every breath, Jesus said:
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:39-40

Let’s sum up what is most important to God and Jesus according to Their Words:

  1. Confess Jesus
  2. Believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead
  3. love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
  4. Love your neighbour like you love yourself.

God will work out all the other details, if the 4 things listed above are being accomplished. In my case, trying to accomplish. I struggle with 3 and 4 :)

God Bless you :)

    1. Yep, I have the first two down to a tee. But if I really loved God, with all my heart, soul, mind, then I wouldn’t worry for one hahaha or get angry…or…or…or hahaha :) and I haven’t even got to #4 ;) We fall short. He knows this, it’s in His word for a reason. It’s not a criticism, it’s an encouragement.

      1. You know what Margaret? I have a thought, and it could be wrong, but it’s just a thought.
        You know how those 2 summarize the law and the prophets?
        We’re not under the Mosaic law per Galatians chapter 3.
        What if we’re not supposed to think we can fulfill those 2, but see the impossibility of it?
        Please don’t misunderstand me, I’m not saying we shouldn’t love God and man to our very best. We definitely should.

      2. I should mention something to encourage you as well.
        You once said to me something to the effect that you let God do the heavy lifting when you share scripture.
        And that stuck with me.
        And it’s a lesson that I hope I never forget.
        I engaged that lesson.

        After my repentance a couple of weeks ago that I wrote an article about.
        I haven’t engaged in any complex doctrine as I once did when I so stupidly thought I had most doctrine figured out.

        So I just want you to know that God used your offhand comment, and you weren’t even aware of it.
        So God bless you. 😃

      3. He can use the jaw bone of an ass, He certainly can use me :):) Thank you for telling me that. I am happy any time the Almighty has used me, and you are right, I wasn’t aware that God had used me at all, more blessings :)

  1. I enjoy your writing, and you make excellent points.

    I’ll toss in a couple of verses,

    “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye love one another.” John 13.34

    “And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.” 1 John 3.23

    Lord bless you
