From The Heart 

From the Heart

When confronted with the truth of God’s love for us, it demands a response. We have established man’s lostness, God’s love and His desire for fellowship with us. Now we come to our response.

Romans 10:9, 10 “that 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. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Confession is acknowledging and agreeing with God of the dominion of sin in one’s life. Confession results from conviction. The process of being condemned by one’s own conscience as a sinner because of God’s demands.

Two elements are present simultaneously in a conversion experience: repentance & faith. They are two sides of the same coin. When true repentance takes place in a life, it is accompanied by saving faith in Jesus Christ. Conversely, when a person believed in Christ with genuine, saving faith, repentance from sin is present.

Repentance means a change of mind/change of direction. To stop doing what we want and now we do what Jesus wants.

Faith means to obey, to trust, to hope, commit to, and having confidence in God’s plan of salvation. That God raised Jesus from the dead. Believing in the resurrection and submitting oneself to the authority of Jesus. Only a heartfelt faith in Jesus can a person experience a right relationship with God.

The Greek root word for righteous and justification is the same.

When the sinner responds to God in faith, God replaces the charge of guilt and condemnation with acquittal and acceptance.

The result of forgiveness and justification is that the sinner stands in a personal relationship with God. The personal relationship is possible because God regards the believer as a righteous person in Christ.

II Corinthians 5:21 “ For He (God) made Him (Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” It is up to each individual to make the decision to accept or reject the salvation the God offers to each individual.
