If you confess with your mouth

Re: Verse reading–Romans 10:8-15; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8 (day six)
“If you confess with your mouth Jesus Christ as Lord. . . you shall be saved.”  (Romans 10:9)  Confess is an interesting word.  In English it sounds guilty, “he confessed to a crime”.  In Greek it simply means “to speak the same word”, “to stand in unity on a matter of truth”.  With whom do we stand when we confess that Jesus is Lord?  We stand with God and watching universe!  ” He (God) has made Him (Jesus) both LORD and Christ.”–Acts 2:36“All authority (Lordship) has been give to me” said Jesus in Matthew 28.  Being original is not the point!  Solidarity is!  When we confess that Jesus is LORD (of the universe and of our lives) we are joining a mighty army of truth-telling people (saints and angels together).  All history moves toward this great climax.  “And every knee shall bow and will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD.”Philippians 2:11.  Better for us to join this wave now!
