Welcome. My prayer is that each of these devotionals is a blessing to you and encourage you in your walk with Jesus or help to lead you to Him.

Romans 10: 9-10

This chapter is packed with gospel truths. In this text, we twice see the words “mouth” and “heart”. There is a direct connection from our hearts to our mouths or what we speak. “Heart” is a word that means the core of who we are, our inner thoughts, our beliefs, our desires, it’s what drives us. That’s why Pro 23 says whatever you think is what you are… That’s why Jesus said whatever is in your heart will come out of your mouth… Here’s the principle: whatever you talk about is what is on your heart. Don’t you find that to be true? Can we use that principle as confirmation that Christ is in our heart? YES!! If Christ and His Kingdom, and what He’s done for you is what you talk about, you can be sure that He lives in your heart! It’s what you talk about, it’s what you think about, it’s what you post on social media… Just another way that we can have confidence in Christ and His work in us.

Paul told his accusers that he couldn’t help but speak of Christ.. is that true of you friend? Allow that to increase your faith and confidence in Christ today!

Father, thank you for confirmation of living in us if we speak of you. Help me and my friends to let the Christ in us come out, and spill over on others. Thank you for Jesus, who fills us with His Spirit, and empties us of our sin!

Verse 9 “because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”
