If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:0
Christ has risen! Happy Easter everyone!
Romans 10:9 is telling us that if we confess that Jesus is Lord than we will be saved. Pay particular attention to the tense in the verse. Jesus is Lord. The invitation is not to put our trust in a dead man. Rather, one who has risen from the dead. We proclaim not only that Jesus was Lord but that Jesus is Lord.
Believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead. Believe that the stone has been rolled away. Believe that the tomb is empty. Believe that the grave is laid bare. Jesus Christ is alive and is Lord today.
