Affirm His Lordship – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional March 22nd

(Consciously Confess The Lordship Of Jesus)

TO THE BIBLE: John 1:12-13
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

There’re many today who, though they have heard about Jesus and believe in Him, have never consciously affirmed His Lordship over their lives. Consequently, they’re not saved.

Believing isn’t enough; the Bible says even the devils believe and tremble: “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?” (James 2:19-20).

There’s a Bible way to receive salvation. Romans 10:9-10 says, “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. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

That’s it! It’s the affirmation of the Lordship of Jesus that catapults the sinner into salvation. In your evangelical work, take the time to help those who are yet to understand this and explain it to them.

Salvation is free and has been made possible and available to all men by Jesus Christ, but it only becomes a vital experience in the lives of those who confess the Lordship of Jesus over their lives.

It brings to mind what John said in John 1:12: “…As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” Hallelujah! Y

ou received Christ into your heart by the affirmation of faith. When you made that declaration, according to Romans 10:9-10, Christ took up His abode in you; you became a new creation—a bona fide son or daughter of God—with His life and nature in your spirit.

No wonder he says in 1 John 3:1, “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God.….” Glory to God!

Jesus fulfilled the righteous demands of justice that consummated salvation for all mankind. Therefore, I pray for sinners around the world today that their hearts will be open to the understanding of the Gospel and that they will confess their faith in Jesus Christ, believing in their hearts that God raised Him from the dead. And as they do, they’re ushered into the new life in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
