Christianity has been known as the Word, the Way and the Confession
- It is by the Word of God that we might live free from the curse.
- It is the way we live, unlike those who do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior, or merely claim such relationship.
- It is what we confess, what we declare to be true and continue to confess even in the face of adversity.
The Word rules our lives establishing the way we are to live, and it is the confession that brings us into that life even when we cannot enter of our own strength.
If we believe in our heart, we confess. And our confession brings it to be. That is why 1 John 4:15 is such a pivotal Scripture – If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God..
It is such a complete Scripture. And it is an action Scripture. Our action is our confession that follows our belief, and there is the consequence that follows: God dwells in us and we in Him. And as we stand our ground, hidden in Christ, Satan has no more power with us than he does with Jesus
Stand on that victory today. Believe and let Satan hear you confess throughout the day that Jesus is the Son of God! Confess it in the midst of your troubles. Confess it during your joys. And as the truth of this confession grows in you, study the benefits of the confession. Let it change you from within.
