If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. — Romans 10:9 (NLT)
There’s no other ifs, buts or maybes. Without fail, without prejudice; regardless of anything and everything you’ve done, however bad it is. Whether you’re black, white, yellow, orange, or any other colour you fancy; whether you’re tall, short, skinny, stout; whether you’re in the church, outside the church, never been to church, never will step foot in the church; if you openly declare and believe (that’s the only if), then you will be saved.
Are you glad about that? I certainly am, for sure. You may be surprised who you will meet in heaven one day! Will we see you there?
If you’re not sure, maybe it’s time for you to “openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead.”
May God bless you, and we hope to see you soon; and we also hope to see you in heaven one day.
