I believe Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead.
Paul tells us that if we confess Jesus and believe in our heart, we will be saved.
I believe for many reasons:
- Historical evidence
- First hand witness accounts written with passion and under threat of death for doing so
- Personal experiences of life change
- Testimony of life change in others
Why do you believe?
But what does it say? ” the word is near you , in your mouth and in your heart “-that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, ” whoever believes in him will not be disappointed .” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for ” whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved .”
Romans 10:8-13 NASB
