I had a hard time learning algebra. I could come to the right answer using simple math, skipping the formulas and even though I had the correct answer, I received a failing grade for not using the formulas. I could plainly see that 2+x=4 and therefore knew that x was 2.
Sometimes the gospel is presented in such a fashion that you seem to have to know the formula to come to the right answer, but let me make this simple for you. 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 it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans 10:9-10 NLT
Two things: one confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. Say it out loud that Jesus is Lord. Then two, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. Just those two things: giving witness that Jesus is Lord, and believing that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved.
There is more to know and understand, but these two simple things are all you need to be saved. Confess, & Believe. There isn’t a special prayer, a ceremony, classes to attend; just confess and believe.
Do you believe? Then confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!
