Romans 10:9-10

Romans 10:9-10 - That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with you mouth that you confess and are saved.

In your life you will have many decisions to make. Some are trivial, like what you will wear or what you will eat for lunch. These things have a significance on the moment, but they have little effect on the future.
Then there are the larger, more important decisions. These are the decisions that affect the course and direction of your life and include things like going to college, buying a house, who you will marry and how many kids you will have. When you make these decisions you know that it will change your life. Things will never be the same.
There is only one decision more important than these ones. This decision will not only affect your life here on earth, but will change the course of your eternity. Whom will you serve? Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He is the only way to heaven. There is no other way. It doesn’t matter how good you are or who you hang out with.
Now this life changing decision is one that you have to make for yourself. Nobody can make it for you. It doesn’t work that way. You have to make a conscience decision whether you will give your life to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Paul lays out the way to salvation very clearly. He says it is not by obeying the law that we are saved, but only by faith and confession. “Confess with your mouth,” He says, “and believe in your heart.” It is as simple as that. There are no other qualifications needed.
God wants you to come just as you are. He accepts you with all of your flaws and bad decisions. If you have not made the choice yet, make it today. Confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. This is the most important decision you will ever make. Don’t let another day pass without Christ in your heart.
