If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:9-10

There must first be a belief in your heart that Jesus died and rose (from the dead) according to the Holy Scriptures, to free you from sin, sickness, and death. Then, you must affirm your belief by confessing it, for it is by confessing with the mouth that one achieves salvation.

Have you ever asked Jesus to come into your heart? Are you tired of living your life like someone fighting against the wind? Please, I urge you, say this prayer with complete and sincere confidence.

Lord Jesus, I come to You this day. I am a helpless sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious blood. Deliver me from sin and Satan, to serve the living God.

Today, Lord Jesus, I accept You as my Lord and Savior. Thank you Jesus for saving me! I now know that I am born again!”

If you have said this prayer, know that you are now a child of God, a new creature destined to reign again. Congratulations!

Those who are not born again cannot enjoy the glory of redemption. The new birth is not for amusement, much less is it a religion. On the contrary, it represents a change in status placing you far above all principalities, powers, and dominions.

Glory to God, for the new birth is life!

If that is the case, why are so many people in Christ still victims of life? Why does poverty ravage so many Christians? Why are many barren in almost every area of life? Why are so many fervent and diligent worshippers still such easy prey for the devil, and why are some believers devastated daily by all forms of afflictions?

The answer to all these questions is simple: They do not know the value of the redemption ticket they hold in their hands! More importantly, they lack the knowledge of the means by which to take possession of their riches.
