When we entertain words of life
Something special occurs within;
There’s a light that fills our soul
When the required change it brings.
When we confess noble thoughts
There’s no room for negativity,
Since the power behind encouraging words
Has potential to plant good seed.
To believe in something is to act
Since it’s not just a passive thought;
It requires diligence and commitment
Once the truth is known and taught.
When our heart truly believes
It inspires us to make a difference;
To act in kindness and walk by faith
Where potential harvest is immense.
When we confess with our mouth
It’s the abundance from our heart;
It’s our thoughts and our desires
That challenge us to make a new start.
To confess the Lord Jesus
And believe in our heart He was raised,
Consolidates our salvation
As we give God all the praise.
We can’t contribute to our salvation
Since it was finalised on the cross,
And by believing and confessing
In our heart the truth is embossed.
Then a wonderful thing does occur
When by faith we trust in Christ,
There’s the process of sanctification
When all sin we learn to fight.
Because the battle will always rage
Since the flesh wants to win,
But when we walk in the spirit
We repent of all our sin.
As we understand the severity
If we continue in transgression,
It will taint our mind and heart
And manipulate all our affections.
To believe unto righteousness
Requires a change of mind;
It’s to crucify our old nature
And leave former patterns behind.
In simplicity there’s a cause and effect
And we do reap what we sow,
And by allowing the Holy Spirit to dwell within
All unrighteousness it must go.
The spiritual warfare is real indeed
And once we learn to fight,
The washing by the word of God
Fills our soul with light.
Jesus was crucified but raised from the dead
To give us life forevermore,
As promised in the Scriptures
Where death will reign no more.

“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.” Romans 10:9-10
