Richard Roberts – Second of four parts
The number-one miracle in any person’s life is a spiritual miracle. In Romans 10, we find these three great verses that tell of this miracle:
“The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart [note that Jesus is the Word made flesh]: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; that 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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:8–10).
A few verses later we read: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
How can you experience the greatest spiritual miracle of all… a cleansing from all sin and guilt and a promise of eternal life? First, call upon the Name of the Lord. Acknowledge to the Lord that you can’t do it all, be it all, or get everything right in life. Admit to God that you have made mistakes and fallen short of His desires for you.
Second, believe in your heart that Jesus is, indeed, the Son of God, who was crucified for your sin and resurrected from the dead so you might have life. And third, speak with your mouth ― first to yourself and then to someone else ― that Jesus is the Lord of your life.
The Bible says that when you do that, you move from a position of eternal death to eternal life. You become a new creature spiritually. You are born anew in the spiritual realm. And you experience the greatest miracle of all. Your spirit is made alive forevermore!
You can experience this miracle today! It’s a miracle God wants you to have in the NOW of your life.
