A Heart of Belief

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:9

The heart is the blood-pump of the body. It is also used metaphorically when we speak of affections and feelings. Since it is the central organ of the body and one of the most vital, the Bible speaks of it as the wellspring of life. Hence, it is used synonymously with “life.” When the Bible says, “Give me your heart” (Proverbs 23:26), it does not mean that we are to cut out our actual hearts and give them to God. It means that we are to give Him our lives, our all. When we come to Christ, we are not only to give intellectual assent with our minds, we are to “believe in our hearts.” We can believe in the historic Jesus, but that will not save us. However, if we have “saving faith” our belief must involve our whole being. When we believe with all our hearts, the will, the emotions, and the intellect are engaged and are surrendered to Christ.


Romans 10:1-12.


My Lord and my God, I than You this day, for the gift of Your own Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and rejoice in the knowledge that He is alive today, and is my Redeemer! Amen
