Openly declare // 27-08-20

“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.” Romans‬ ‭10:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Jesus said that the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. Our words reveal what our hearts are focused on. My internal beliefs, desires, dislikes, prejudices etc will be heard in the way that I talk and the things that I say! I wonder what my speech reveals about who or what has my heart? Lord, I pray that today my heart would be filled with the Good News of Your resurrection power and the knowledge that I am made right through the saving work of Jesus; and out of the overflow of my heart that my tongue would declare that You are Lord of my life, my mouth filled with the language of faith, hope and love that only comes from truly knowing You. Amen 🙏🏼
