- Jesus is Lord
because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 Confessing Jesus as Lord Chosen and loved before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4-5), faith in Jesus is a gift by God's grace (Ephesians 2:8-9), and God's love has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit who has been given to us (Romans 5:5). It's not what we do that sets us free from the bondage of sin. It's what we believe in our hearts that sets us free, and only Jesus can set us free. Our speech and our actions will naturally reflect what's deep down in our hearts, whether that's love for God and others or love for self and the world. (See 1 John 2:15-17 for definition on the term 'world' in this context). Paul said,“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved (Romans 10:8-10). And Jesus said, "For the mouth speaks from that which fills the heart" (Matthew 12:34). "What's down in the well comes up the bucket. What's down in the heart comes out of the mouth." - Steve Lawson. We will confess with our mouths what we believe to be true in our hearts. We will confess Jesus as Lord if we believe that Jesus was raised from the dead, since His resurrection is the supreme validation of who He is as God. So if Jesus is down in our hearts, Jesus will come out of our mouths. We will declare Him. We will share Him. We will discuss Him. Jesus said, "Therefore, everyone who confesses Me before people, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before people, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven (Matthew 10:32-33), (Timothy 2:11-12). Not ever speaking up for Jesus is equivalent to denying Him. Therefore, if someone never makes a peep that Jesus is Lord, it only reveals that their heart doesn't really know Him as Savior. (Scripture talks about a final, permanent denial of Jesus, not a temporary failure of a true believer like Peter). Jesus is Not a Kept Secret We are never to keep Jesus a secret. There is no such thing as a private faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus makes it clear that if we don't confess Him before others, He won't confess to His Father that He knows us either. True faith is a public faith. True faith is a spoken, verbal faith. Our faith ought to be the most public thing about us, regardless of personalities or insecurities, extroverted or introverted, bold or shy. Being convicted about the magnificent truth in Jesus should far outweigh and transcend our personalities, personal preferences, and the manner in which we like to socialize. No matter what personality we are given by God, where we're at in the Christian walk, true faith in Jesus is a public faith (Romans 10:9), whether we speak of Him in front of an entire audience or we quietly share Him one-on-one with a close friend. I'm not talking about making some grand public announcement that Jesus is Lord (although that would bring glory to Jesus too), but I'm talking about simply acknowledging that Jesus is Lord with our mouths in front of other people, as Scripture clearly states. In the end, no matter who we are or what insecurities we have, the Lord will give us the grace to verbally confess Jesus as Lord in front of others if He is truly down in our hearts. Obeying Jesus as Lord “The driver on the highway is safe not when He reads the signs, but when He obeys them.” AW Tozer We who confess Jesus as Lord and believe that God raised Him from the dead will naturally follow and obey Jesus too, by the Holy Spirit who lives in our hearts. We won't just profess to know Him with hollow words and then by our actions deny Him (Titus 1:16), (1 John 2:4). That's just playing the hypocrite. We don't obey God to be saved. We obey God because we are saved. Reasons why we obey God: • We obey God because we believe in God. • We obey God because we trust that Jesus paid it all. Jesus was our Perfect Substitute. He died on the cross for our sins and rose again, so that by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone, we may have eternal life. • We obey God because we trust His Word and His goodness. • We obey God because we want to • We obey God because we have the Holy Spirit who is our Helper. • We obey God because His grace is sufficient and enables us to do so. • We obey God because we have been born again and adopted into His eternal family. • We obey God because He is our loving Father. • We obey God because we are His children. • We obey God because He has transformed our hearts and given us a new nature in Christ. • We obey God because in our new natures, we now hunger and thirst after righteousness (Matthew 5:6), and hate the sin we once practiced and loved. • We obey God because we know that once we are saved, we are always saved. We are eternally secure. We know we can never lose our salvation (John 10:28). • We obey God because we love Him. • We obey God because He gave us the greatest gift imaginable: eternal life and to be with Jesus forever. How could we ever return to living in sin and disobedience again after being given something as extraordinary as Jesus Himself? • We obey God because Jesus is in our hearts. Mere external acts of obedience, sacrificial deeds that are done without love, and working for our salvation and thinking we are earning God's favor through our "good deeds" is legalism. On the other hand, heartfelt obedience to God's Word by God's grace is evidence that we believe in Jesus and belong to Jesus. The Litmus Test Those who claim Jesus with their mouths must also display these three characteristics through their actions as genuine Christ followers: 1. Trusting in sound doctrine and a proper view of Christ, which naturally flows from true faith 2. Obedience to God's Word, which naturally flows from true faith 3. Love for God and other believers, which naturally flows from true faith Those who are truly born again have been given a new nature from God, which gives evidence of itself. Displaying these byproducts of true faith is all by the power of the Holy Spirit, not by our own human willpower. Obviously, we will have far from perfect obedience, but our lives will be marked by a pattern of obedience to God's Word and a practice of righteousness rather than sin. Furthermore, believers are able to discern and reject false teaching by the Holy Spirit, who guides us into all truth (John 16:13) because we are grounded in the truth of sound doctrine. Lastly, our love for God and our fellow believers will flow from loving and obeying His Word, and we will worship Him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24). When these three things, true faith, obedience, and love sing together in harmony, they produce joy, holiness, and assurance of salvation in the believer and constitute the litmus test of a true believer. The single most responsible thing we could ever do in this life is to examine ourselves to make sure Jesus is truly in our hearts; the Biblical Jesus and not a wimpy jesus of our own making and imagination. Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test? (2 Corinthians 13:5). The best way to examine ourselves is not by comparing ourselves to other Christians but through the lens of Scripture. The Book of First John was written to believers to help us know that we truly believe in Jesus and have eternal life. (It is a book of joy for the believer because it gives us assurance of our salvation)! It's very important to examine ourselves from time to time, but we must never get so fixated on ourselves that we take our eyes off Jesus. For every look we take at ourselves, let's take ten long gazes at Jesus, the Light of the world. Check out my other latest blog, If You Love Me... 7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous, 8 the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9 No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he is born of God. 10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother (1 John 3:7-10). "Our faith and works are merely reflections of the salvation we have received, not a contributing factor to it." Sinclair Ferguson "Hearing the Word without doing it, professing it without practicing it, singing 'Jesus is King' and pleasing myself is an indication of the fact that I have never truly trusted in Christ." Alistair Begg
- If You Love Me...
If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. John 14:15 Scripture Says... If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. (John 14:15) He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him. (John 14:21) If you keep My commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in His love (John 15:10). This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, (1 John 5:2-3) We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands.4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.5 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did. (1 John 2:3-6) So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in My word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:31-32). If We Love Him... Jesus says that if we love Him, we will keep His commandments. These “commandments” involve the entire scope of Christ's revelation, not just the Ten Commandments. They encompass all of Jesus’ words in Scripture, which are God the Father’s words too (John 14:23-24), and they are not burdensome. Therefore, loving Jesus is not a mere feeling since biblical love is not an abstraction but an action (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). Rather, loving Jesus is an active, abiding, and continuous relationship of following and obeying Him as our loving Master.“We know that we have come to know Him if we keep His commandments” (1 John 2:3). When Jesus speaks, we do well to listen. When Jesus repeats Himself, we do well to listen even closer. In John’s Gospel, three times Jesus emphasizes the need for keeping His commandments as evidence of our love for Him and the Father. We are not saved by anything we do or by keeping a list of rules through mere external acts of obedience (which is legalism). But we are saved by grace through faith alone, which produces a love for God. Saving faith and true love for Jesus are inseparable from heartfelt obedience to His will. Of course, we will have far from perfect obedience with how fallen we are, but the habit of practicing righteousness through the process of sanctification is evidence that we have the Holy Spirit living within us. It is the Holy Spirit who gently convicts us of sin and helps us walk according to God’s will through faith. Right after Jesus makes the statement “If you love me, you will keep my commandments,” He adds, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever” (John 14:16). Jesus knows that to keep His commandments in this fallen world, it will require God's grace in the form of the Holy Spirit’s presence in our hearts. We can't do God's will or keep His commandments by our own human merit or willpower. That's impossible. Rather, our obedience and good works are expressions of the faith and love we have for Jesus, which is poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). This is consistent with the teaching of James 2:14-26 that true saving faith manifests itself by works produced by God in the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. If We Abide in His Word... So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in My word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:31-32). Furthermore, Jesus says if we abide in His Word, we are truly His disciples. When we abide in His Word, we prove to be His disciples. The word, "abide" here means to habitually hold fast to Jesus' teachings and persevere in obedience to Scripture. The word “truth” here speaks not only that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and to the Gospel Truth but also to the teachings that He brought to us in the Scriptures. Trusting in Christ as Savior ( His person and finished work of redemption on our behalf) goes along with submitting to Christ as Lord (abiding in His Word). Believing in Jesus is not just a one-time occurrence or intellectually agreeing with the historical facts of the gospel. It is a daily walk and lifelong commitment to trust in Jesus. A genuinely saved follower of Jesus will know, understand, and habitually walk (abide) in divine truth, which brings freedom from the bondage of sin. Only those who believe and receive the truth of who Jesus is as the Way, the Truth, and the Life are set free and in turn “abide in His Word” or keep His commands. The only way we can detect and fight the lies of sin is by trusting in Jesus, which produces a love for God and the truth of His Word. Believers can struggle with sin in this life and still be saved, but a believer cannot go on freely practicing sin or believing both sin and God are good. We will either serve one or the other but not both (Romans 6:16). It’s not what we do that frees us from the bondage of sin. It’s what we believe that sets us free, and our actions will naturally reflect what's in our hearts. May we love and treasure Jesus in our hearts, for it's Jesus who sets us free. Dear Heavenly Father, I praise You for Your saving grace! I praise You for gifting me with the Holy Spirit. He is my Helper who will be with me forever (John 14:16). He guides me into all truth and helps me keep Your commandments. Help me to trust in You with all my heart and not lean on my own understanding. In all my ways help me submit to You, as You make my paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6). All glory belongs to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ Name I pray Amen. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love. 2 John 1:6 He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul, But he who is careless of conduct will die. Proverbs 19:16
- Did God Actually Say...?
“Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” Genesis 3:1. The Fall of Man Where God puts a period, Satan puts a question mark. Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, 3 but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” 4 But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:1-5). The fall of man in the Garden of Eden is the most tragic event in the history of mankind. All that is wrong, both small and big, personal and global; all that is immoral and evil; all that is broken and incomplete; all that is loss, pain, and fear; all that is gossip, slander, jealousy, hate, vengeance, and regret; all that is pride, hypocrisy, selfishness; all that is manipulation, confusion, cheating, and lies; all that falls short of the glory of God comes from this one event. The fall of man in the garden defines the world in which we live today. It's the very reason for decay and death itself. It's the reason why we look to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ as the Light of the world and our ultimate Hope, Joy, and Treasure. Satan's Game Plan The setting is the Garden of Eden, the opponent is Satan (which means adversary), the easy target is Eve, and the game plan is deception. Satan’s goal is to construct a lie that Eve believes to lure her into her own spiritual death. He poses what seems like an innocent question at first but is really manipulation.“Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” (Genesis 3:1). This is the very first question of the Bible. Before this, there were only answers. As the main part of his strategy, Satan lies about the character of God and the Word of God. He lies about God's goodness and authority, twists God's Words, and aims to destroy God's truth from Eve, in which he succeeds. Disguised as an Angel of Light Scripture says that Satan was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44). Ever since the garden, Satan's strategy has been lies and deception. He disguises himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14) but he's really an angel of hell. He disguises himself as the proclaimer of truth, but he's really the father of lies. (John 8:44). Satan wants to get us to believe that he is the truthful one while God is the liar. Throughout all the centuries, Satan's tactics have not changed. His deception may have been subtle to Eve, yet it’s not so subtle to us in this age. We experience an assault on the truth nearly every day through the Internet, news, and social media. This whole world is full of layers and layers of deception. As believers, we are called to be discerning. Scripture commands us not to believe every spirit but to test every spirit (1 John 4:1). The only way we can grow in discernment and be able to detect lies and deceitful spirits is by saturating our minds with Scripture on a daily basis. "A life fed on fiction is a life of fiction. A life fed on divine fact will become a life of divine fact." CH Spurgeon. Planting Seeds of Doubt Satan tempts us to believe we have a right to question God and a right to doubt that He's telling us the truth in His Word. He also tempts us to believe the lie that we can even become our own gods, knowing good and evil. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:5). This is the point where everything begins to fall apart. The assumption that we have the right to question God and to render our own judgment on what God commands is where we begin to self-destruct. Satan plants a seed of doubt in Eve’s mind by the subtlety of his question. “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” (Genesis 3:1). Satan tries to get Eve to first distrust the character of God because if she can't trust His goodness, how is she going to obey His Word? His question is devised to set Eve on a path of questioning God that will soon spiral out of control. Questioning God leads her to doubt God, to distrust God, then to ultimately disobey God and obey Satan instead, which throws the whole human race into sin. Through the subtlety of Satan's question, he implies that God is really not that good. If God was really good and really loving He would have never put such a restriction on her like that. How dare He? Satan implies that if God really cares about Eve, He would let her eat from every tree in the garden. By how Satan strategically words his question, he plants the idea in Eve's mind that God is actually quite restrictive, unfair, and even cruel. Alongside that, he gets her to believe that it's Satan who is really generous. It's Satan who promotes and allows freedom while God is the One who's all about control and bondage. All Sin Follows the Same Pattern From the garden up until now; the same goes for the world we live in today. It's a very slippery slope the second we think God is against us and not for us. Satan wants us to believe that God’s Word is subject to our own judgment. All temptation begins with the idea that we have the right to make our own evaluations of what God has already clearly said. All sin follows this same pattern. It’s a very simple yet clever plan, and it’s where all sin originates. We think we have a right to question God when confronted with a lie or temptation. Then we think we have the right to doubt Him, both His goodness and His authority. Then we believe we have the right to distrust Him altogether and trust in ourselves instead, making ourselves into little gods. This inevitably leads us away from God and His goodness and into disobedience to His Word, where only sorrow and regret await us, whether earthly or eternal. The Greatest of All Lies Satan’s greatest of all lies is to tempt us to think there is no final judgment. He tempts us to believe there is no hell or eternal suffering. He tempts us to think it's ok to continue living comfortably in our unrepentant sins. He tempts us to come up with our own definitions of faith in Jesus, God's grace, and true love. He tempts us to trust in our own minds and to create our own standards of these terms, rather than trusting what Scripture says and taking God at His Word. He tempts us to keep our Bibles closed and create a jesus of our own imagination. He tempts us with legalism and a gospel by works. He tempts us to abuse God's grace with following easy-believism Christianity. He tempts us to disbelieve in the existence of God altogether while tempting us to believe we came from monkeys and baboons over billions of years. With his many paths of lies, Satan’s final goal is to lead us away from Jesus, the Light of the world, and into the outer darkness of eternal suffering. Scripture, the Sword of the Spirit Scripture is the sword of the Spirit. We can only triumph over lies if we read our Bibles. We can only come to know Jesus as He is revealed to us in Scripture. We can only grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus as we keep our eyes on His Word. May we believe in God. May we trust His goodness. May we trust His clear, authoritative, and sufficient Word that all point us to the Light of the world, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 Dear Heavenly Father, The whole human race fell into sin, but You so mercifully provided a way for me to live forever through Your Son, Jesus. Jesus lived the perfect life I could never live, suffered and died on the cross for my sins, and in three days rose again that by grace through faith in Him, I may live forever! Lord, give me the grace to live for the One who died for me. Help me trust in You with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). All glory belongs to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen! And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. Romans 10:17
