ROMANS 10:9-10

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
