Words of Assurance: Romans 10

Here are words of assurance to follow a time of confession.  They come from Romans 10: 9-11 (Phillips translation):


Words of Assurance

(based on Romans 10: 9-11)


Brothers and sisters,

if you openly admit by your own mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord,

and if you believe in your own heart that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

For it is believing in the heart that makes one righteous before God,

and it is stating that belief with your own mouth that confirms your salvation.

As the Scripture says:

“whoever believes in Jesus Christ shall not be disappointed.”

So be at peace:  your sins are forgiven.
