God’s Church United

Ro 10:9-10 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.    For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

We humans like to make things complicated.  God has made it very simple.  We confess out loud Jesus, His only Son, as Lord and believe we really believe it with our hearts then we are adopted as children of God.  Before we do this we are only God’s creations.  When we do believe, we will desire to really know our God and we will desire to walk in obedience to His written Word he so graciously provided for us through those who have walked before us.  We like to split hairs over doctrines of interpretation of God’s written Word rather than accept one another in love.  What matters is our confession and belief in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  How we take communion or how we are baptized or any of other things should not separate us from the unity of the family of God.  We should each walk in obedience as He leads us and concentrate on His love for us and our love for Him to keep His Church unified.
