Something We All Need to Say

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 nkjv)

Have you ever openly declared that Jesus is Lord? It should be the easiest thing to say, and it’s something that we all need to say. Romans 10:9 tells us, “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” (nkjv). That is the very message about faith that we preach.

But we can’t just feel it; we need to act on it. Sometimes we give intellectual assent to something, but it doesn’t take hold in our hearts. This needs to be an inner conviction. Yes, we mentally agree to it, but we embrace it as a conviction as well. It’s very important to verbally say what we’re thinking in our hearts.

I think men have more trouble with this than women. Women seem to be far more open to express their affection and love, while it’s not as easy for men. But know this about men: we have the same emotion and depth of love that everyone else has; we just express it differently. So we have to work a little harder at that sometimes.

We need to express our love to the Lord: Lord, I love You. I appreciate what You do for me. I honor You. I glorify You.

Yes, the Lord can see our hearts. But He tells us to offer Him the sacrifice of praise. As Hebrews 13 says, “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name” (verse 15 nkjv).

So we need to say that Jesus is Lord. We need to express that in church and honor the Lord in our worship. But we need to say that to others as well.
