FINDING HOPE IN JESUS (continued)

"That if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation." Romans 10:9-10

God in His word is telling you that to have eternal life you must call upon Jesus, confess Him as Lord and trust Him to save you. 

"Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. But whosoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven." Matthew 10:32-33

There is a cost to following Jesus.

"For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it." Matthew 15:25

You will have to give up living a life of sin and living for yourself to live for Jesus in obedience to His word.
