Why Confess Jesus?
John 12:42 ¶ Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Unless these people, changed their mind, and openly confessed Jesus, at a later date, they missed the kingdom of God, salvation, and eternal life!
“But I pray silently”, you might say, “God knows my heart and thoughts!” isn’t that enough?
Not because I say so, but because the Word of God says so:
Ro 10:9 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.
Mt 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Confess your faith in Jesus today. To Him, before men, and He will confess You before the very throne of God, and you will not only experience salvation, eternal life, and heaven as your home, but the power of God, now, in this life, for when He confesses you before our Father in heaven, our Father hears, answers, and responds to your life, in power.
Simply because you confessed, out loud, the Lordship of Jesus in your life.
‘Father, I declare that Jesus is my Lord, today, now! Give me courage and boldness to confess Him at church, at work, before my family, before all men. As I do, I trust you to protect, deliver, bless, and establish Your kingdom in my life, for Your glory Lord Jesus, Amen’
