The Unqualified Commitment

Romans 10:9,10:

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.

When a man confesses with his mouth Jesus as Lord and believes in his heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, God creates a new spirit in the man, the man who before this confession had just a body and soul. The moment you believe in the depth of your innermost being that God raised Jesus from the dead, you are saved. You have eternal life abiding within.

This is the miracle of conversion, the new birth, a miracle of God whereby a man or woman of body and soul becomes a new creation in Him thus having body, soul and spirit.

If we are born again of God's Spirit, filled with the power of the holy spirit, we can worship the true God by the spirit. And to worship by the spirit we must operate a manifestation of the holy spirit. The manifestation of the spirit which produces true worship is speaking in tongues.
