Romans 10:9‑10  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
"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." Romans 10:99That 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. (Romans 10:9).
I have quite a few friends who are deaf mutes. They are not able to confess the Lord Jesus with their mouths, but do you know what they do? They take their hand and form the letter "L" in their own sign language and raise it lovingly toward heaven. That is the way they say LORD. They point to the palms of their hands (where the nail prints were in His hands) while reverently bowing their heads: JESUS—LORD JESUS.
But—there are men and women, boys and girls, to whom God has given the ability to speak and they have never opened their lips to confess the Lord Jesus as Savior. If at this moment the Lord Jesus stood before you with that wondrous offer of eternal pardon and a home in the glory, and waited for your answer, what would it be? Would you hang your head in complete silence? Would you shake your head and send Him away?
You will hear His voice some day. If you stop your ears and refuse to hear Him now, as He pleads with you to accept Him as your Savior, you will hear His voice in a coming day pronouncing judgment on every one who has rejected Christ.
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:1010For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:10).
