Confessing Christ is Essential to Commitment to Christ

The Bible says that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. We are what we believe and we are committed to what we confess. When we confess what we believe, we are committed to our beliefs. If we don’t confess it, we don’t have to admit believing it. If we don’t admit to believing it, we can change our beliefs.

Jesus was misunderstood and mocked because of His identification with God. He was condemned for claiming to be Who He really was. Often, we can be misunderstood, criticized, and condemned for confessing that we are children of the Living God, that we are joint heirs with Jesus Christ, and that we are a brother or sister to Jesus and part of the family of God. Such accusations stem from Satan, the “accuser of our brethren, “to keep us from confessing who we really are in Christ.

Satan wants to confuse that relationship and leave us unprotected, insecure, and low in our self-image. By doing so, he perverts the Gospel. He can keep the Good News from spreading if he can cause us to bottle up our confession and the witness of our lives. Confession is essential to identification. Confession is essential to commitment. Confession is essential to relationship.
