  Paul, writing to Christians, says in Romans 10:8-10: But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart"-- that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord*, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation." (NAS)

Paul was writing to Christians in the city of Rome.  Paul had reminded these Christians throughout his letter of many things that they had done to become Christians, including the ones listed here.  As we will see later in this lesson, there is much more to becoming a Christian than just to say that Jesus is your Lord...or to say that you believe.

If Jesus is truly the Lord of your life, would you not follow to the best of your ability the things that He says...and then have faith in the promises that Jesus makes to those who obey His word?

"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.' Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock." Matthew 7:21-24 (NAS)
