“If you declare 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 profess your faith and are saved.” – Romans 10:9-10
This Holy Week allows us to discover what we believe in our heart about God. What we believe forms the words of our mouth to speak. We do this not only in direct statements of our belief but also in our interactions with one another. Do we speak with the joy of the Lord in our heart, or do we speak as a nonbeliever?
This week, find opportunities to engage in the last days of Jesus through reading his word, praying, going to a Maundy Thursday or a Good Friday service. Walking through the Stations of the Cross may also allow you to ponder Jesus’ last week. You could also watch a movie like The Passion. Discover anew what it is that you truly believe and live that out all the days of your life.
Faith Tip: As you search and discover this week, begin in prayer.
