Romans chapter 10, verse 9. 'That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.' He died to save us from the punishment of our sins..heaven or hell.
verse 8 of that chapter says...the word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart; that is, the word of faith, which we preach. The choice is ours!
I love how the Bible spells everything out again and again. Before I got saved, it annoyed me to hear the gospel invitation over and over. After I accepted Jesus as My saviour....it blesses me to hear the call go out again and again for those whose need is still not met.
I've been reading up a storm, all cozy with the fan going and my very own 1st ever ...recliner. Lol....now I understand the popularity of recliners with menfolk. =)
