VOD 04/18/09: Don't Be Ashamed Of Him
If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (NIV)
Imagine Jesus being proud of you! He said if we confess Him before others here on earth, He will speak up for us in heaven. Confessing that Jesus is Lord is simply acknowledging the truth. But for believers, it is more than that, since at the close of time every knee will bow and every tongue confess His name. For us, confessing Jesus is anticipating His triumph in which we will share.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings. Mighty God, Your Son is our Lord. We love Him and praise Him for His redeeming sacrifice. We thank Him for His conquest of the grave. We marvel at His sacrificial and triumphant grace. Jesus is Lord. We know it sounds sweet in Your ears so we say it again, Jesus is our Lord. Thank You for being so great that You would be so sacrificial.
We pray these things in the name of Your most Holy Son, Jesus the Christ...Amen.
Good morning to all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and blessed day.
May God Bless,
