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.
Romans 10:9

Growing up, I always seemed to get into a whole lot of mischief. One time, my father and I where shopping for items that I needed for a upcoming Scouting camp out at this Boy Scout store in Southern California. I must’ve been only 9 and it was the year where my Elementary school was teaching us about the “Gold Rush.” I managed to leave my father’s side and was wondering around the store gazinng at all the amazing item’s for sale when I saw them. Gold Coins! I thought to myself. I, sneakingly, looked around and managed to pocket a few of the coins. I stole them.

As we departed the store and during the drive home, I began to feel worse and worse at what I had done. I knew stealing was a terrible thing to do and I knew I was going to get in a lot of trouble. I eventually confessed to my father what I had done. I was punsihed and I ultimately had to return the coins and apologize. I did not want to confess, but I did. I especially did not want to return the coins to the store where I stole them from, but I did. You know what, after I did all this, I felt better. I was punished by my father, but I learned a good lesson.

The same goes for us in our Heavenly Fathers eyes.  When we lie, cheat, steal, or do whatever it is we do to offend the Lord, we must repent by confessing to what we did and learn from the wrongs to make things right again. We must realize our mistake, by convicted at heart and have the need for change.

As it says in Romans 10:9, “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.”  What a powerful statement of truth.  Confess and be saved… turn and move on.  Has a catchy ring to it huh?

So today my brothers and sisters, meditate on your “thing” that causes you to fall.  Focus hard and concentrate on what trigger’s you to give in and write down possible steps to over-come it.

May God Bless and comfort you all as we part our ways today
