Believe in the Heart
Romans 10:8-9 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
What is in your heart? How will others know?
John 10:9-11 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
Matthew 15:18-19 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
James 3:9-18 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. 14But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 18And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
Pure deeds of truth
Peaceable bring peace with it, peaceful, salutary
Gentle : patient , moderation
Easy to be entreated :easily obeying, compliant
Full of mercy: kindness or good will towards the miserable and the afflicted, joined with a desire to help them
Good fruits without partiality and sincere
Is our confession from our mouth and heart? Is our faith shown in actions and exhortation our righteousness proceeding before us? Are we known and read of all men as epistles written on our hearts? We should judge ourselves because the world stands ready to judge us.
Father may our hearts be on our sleeves according to Your word. May others see we are your servants and brothers to Messiah by what we say and the lives we live.Mercy for our often short comings, By Your Spirit Yahushua, let correction come and wisdom prevail in our lives. May we let Your Sons love and patience be seen in us. We are the people of Yahuweh not just with the mouth but the heart.
Shama Israel, Yahuweh Elohaynu, Yahuweh Echad.
