Daily Bible Reading for Sunday, February 18th:

The Good Confession

Paul called the confession of Jesus as the Christ and the Son of God “the good confession.” (1 Timothy 6:12-13) I can’t think of any better reason to call it that than the promise Jesus makes in Luke 12:8-9. If it goes anything like Christ’s response to Peter when he confessed that Jesus was the Christ, (Matthew 16:17-18) then it truly is a wonderful event.

Other reasons we call it “the good confession” include:

  • It is part of God’s plan of salvation (Romans 10:9-10)
  • Jesus was condemned for making it (John 19:7, Mark 14:62)
  • God made it (Matthew 3:17, Matthew 17:5)
  • All will make it eventually (Philippians 2:11)
  • Christ confesses those who make it (Matthew 10:32)

Making the good confession – actually saying that Jesus is the Son of God in front of others, opens your heart to the desire to obey God’s commandments. It is how we are able to be truly obedient to God’s plan
