God has a Encouraging Word for you and me today. The Bible-based teaching of Dr. Don Wilton as we head to the book of Romans chapter 10 together in Christ. More is possible that we know that we affirm that, but how do we live that out in the sense of discovery, not only where we can do more to the power of Christ we can learn how to do less and accomplish more in today's topic more is possible is coming up next with Dr. Don Wilton while we die, then we will remind you were connecting both on our website TW online.org and our phone number 866-899-WORD 24 hours a day connecting with wonderful resources like the wonderful book store meal. Marty and all the power.
Praying for your adult children.
Take a look right firstname.lastname@example.org but now today's teaching with Dr. Don Wilton a lot of things that we are searching for you one of those people want you've got everything I know what you don't have.
I know that we're in the midst of a hard time in our country, but with school. The most blessed people on the face of the I came back from Asia just recently wanted to get on my knees and kiss the ground because I love America so much, regardless of whether your pantry is full with food or empty regardless of whether your marriage is healthy or on rocky ground regardless of whether your children are growing up strong, whether they are struggling like God, I discovered that people all over the world trying to find something looking this got to be more to life should allow them just this rigmarole that you and I are engaged in this life, but you will not go through and we wake up in the morning and the second verse is the same as the first.
It seems like the more we have, the more we realize how much we do not have. Seems like the more we eat the hungrier we become.
It seems like that off first grows like an applicable and I have found people just like you and me. Everywhere we go, because I am no different search.
Well, there are four things people search for all people are searching for forgiveness. All people want to be forgiven. I will be forgiven.
Don't you I messed up so many times.
Bible says all of us of sin and come short of the glory of God. People want to be love all people want to be loved.
I had a man come to me a year or so ago and he said to me,' he said you know that I never heard my father ever. Not once told me that he loved me so you kidding me. He said all know my dad would take me to play tennis and we would play golf and we would go swimming and we would go on vacations, but my father would never say the word. All people want to be love. Love is not just a wound. It's an extra people want that. It doesn't matter how high and mighty. We become it doesn't matter how clean we all with the saints of our own importance.
All people want to be loved old people want to have purpose. Everybody wants to have a purpose. I want to know I want to wake up and no what my purpose is here on this earth. Why am I here what is this life all about doing well, not going happen. I have meaning in my life and people want to belong. That's why we have so many organizations and clubs, and societies in groups is nothing worse than being lonely spoke to a precious lady that I know just recently lost her husband of many many years and they had such a love relationship together and she looked at me and she said to me brother Don.
She said I'm just so lonely I feel as though I have no one to belong to everybody wants to belong.
It's not a matter of being being possessed. You want to be talked all and be accepted as being talked all to be part of the family and I've got such good news for you today because the Bible tells us that when we into the empty tomb that Jesus, by the power what's right. Which you would like to know that we know that we know that in Christ more responsible. You and I can ever imagine how good such good news for you today, and this passage in Romans that I just read speaks about two essentials. You see, I don't know if you're anything like me, but when I was young and in my 20s. You know it, but this was what I was saying to tell me how to do this you know I'm I'm I hear it stop listening to my father preacher not read the Bible and I bought the church and I been these things, but just tell me what give me the nuts and bolts of the sling.
Well, Paul was writing and he said listen if you want to be saved and you know I love that word say if it's the same word that that we get. I went to rescue you know that when Jesus came out of the gray he accomplished God's plan to rescue you and me.
That's why he hung up on the cross and he said it is finished up carried out God's rescue plan for people like Don Wilton people up on the and and so Paul uses that word say what am I being saved I'm being saved from my search my search for forgiveness. Something I'm being saved from a search for love him being saved from from this feeling of emptiness that has no purpose on being saved from that I'm I'm being saved from my my loneliness because when I give my heart to Jesus. I'm immediately included in the family of God. I am not into God's family become one of his children. That's why in Christ more is possible. The I can ever imagine.
It's all about Easter Sunday Jesus has risen from the grave. He's alive. What are these two essentials like rocket.
You can read them for yourself. Essentials number one this is what you gotta do you go to confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord you go to confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. That's what the Bible says there in verse nine. I had two gentlemen come to my door on Friday night. I knocked on my door. I'm not sure if I really understood whose door they knocked on but I did 45 minutes later, when I asked me if I could leave.
I told them how much I respect them and I told them I was so courteous to them but I'm gonna tell you one thing folks I said let's take a look at this in God's word together and I'm not interested in some other book. I'm not interested in what some man has to say. Folks listen they too many men and women in the small group said about the onset. Note don't if it is from the White House to the Prime Minister's office.
If you haven't said how come we're in such a mess on that guard and that that one for the future. Love, I love it I could gobble it up right now to send you ready for this. Number one.
Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, you might say to me did I pasta what does that mean it means three things when you confess that Jesus is Lord. This is why it's essential you cannot be erased.
You cannot be saved unless you confess that Jesus is Lord you're listening to Dr. Don Wilton our teacher here on The Encouraging Word.
Please don't go away will be back in just a moment to complete today's message in Christ more is possible, but a part of our ministry are together is following to the chastisement of our pastor saying it's not just about the Sunday service or the Wednesday service or the daily broadcast of The Encouraging Word. It's about spending time personally in God's word on a daily basis. And so one of the first things we developed as we began this ministry with Dr. Don would take a moment and create something that we could spend every day studying God's word is now grown into the daily Encouraging Word devotional you can receive it both physically and can send that to you in the mail.

Today's message from Dr. Don Wilton. What is it mean three things. It means that Jesus is the only one who can receive confession you can go to your preaching priest, your name, your friend nobody can receive your confession. Only Jesus can. That's what it means that he is Lord.
That's what's essential to confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord number two.
It means that Jesus is the only one who can forgive you, but what else can nobody else can. You have often thought to myself, you know goodness, this is America free enterprise I'm going to set up a forgiveness Institute. I tell you I could finance a lot of things, especially when I look around and I see Greg and Kaz and Steve sitting down Jan make a lot of money just out of those three hello what is it me that Jesus is Lord. It means he's the one who can receive my confession, but it also means that he is the only one who can forgive me for my sin. But what else can I not all the Baptist in the world. Not all the Methodists in the world. Not all the praise be there in the world not only Episcopalian in the world. Not all works in the world. Only Jesus can forgive me for my sin. That's why got to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, and number three. It means that Jesus is the only one who can give you eternal life. This new life. Listen folks everywhere I go I find people saying bottom line you want to get it down to where the water hits the wheel. I want to be different. I'm tired of this kind of going in a circle and tired of peddling my own canoe. I'm tired of tumbling on the ground. I'm tired of going in reverse gear. I'm tired of the struggle.
I'm just tired I need a new life a new beginning and the Bible says if you're in Christ you become a brand-new creature, old things are possible when all things become brand-new will that happen because Jesus Christ by the power of God was raised from the date somebody say I like that and that wonderful all right this essential number one you got, you must confess with your mouth is no such thing as a Secret Service agent in the kingdom of God, we tell you something, folks. God accuse you speak. That's why you go to confess with your mouth. This doesn't happen by osmosis. You go to site you go to speak up, but this second essential is that you go to believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you say that that's what he says in Romans 10 verse nine he says you go to believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. That's the second essential now what does it mean this belief that you believe in the resurrection in the empty tomb that means three things. It means that Jesus is the only one who conquered sin. That's what it means when you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead by the way the word the is the word fight doesn't mean that you understand I understand this to you. I'm not some kind of genius. I don't on this, but I believe it take God at his word.
If you believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. What you doing this believe it means that you actually believe that Jesus is the only one who conquered sin, you see folks.
We've got a certain problem with reading some problem Bible says all of us of sin and come short of the glory of God. But number two.
It means that Jesus is the only one who defeated Bible says the wages of sin is there and when Jesus came out of the grave. Folks, he came back to live by the power of God conquered day.
I'm often around this folks hopping around a lot of people who have died. You can't imagine the difference between a person who is saying he's been rescued by God. A person who has Jesus in their heart. You can't imagine the difference between the day of someone who knows Jesus and someone who doesn't like chalk and cheese. You can't even you can't even measure the two if you want to know the difference go to funeral service of somebody who doesn't know Jesus you not to hear those funeral services and we should all you readers all the accolades of what they've done in life and you should. I think it's very important because people accomplish a lot of things but there's no joy because there's no hope. I mean, what happens what you do, just evaporate go back to dust dances. This mistreats the sphere, but then you go to the funeral service of someone who is God in Christ. You can since you can feel the joy why because when you believe that God raised Jesus from the dead, you are believing that Jesus is the only one who defeated it so the Baptist one. I'm not going to die because in Christ. On May the ending really when you believe that God raised Jesus from the dead, you believe that Jesus is the only one who raises people like you and me to live. Bible says in Adam all die, but in Christ world made alive and you know I do this in this wonderful study on Sunday nights at 5 o'clock and weight restarting through the book of Revelation. At the moment it's incredible. I'm taking when you talk about heaven and Jesus coming in the clouds and and all those who are alive and remain being caught up together with those who have already died to meet the Lord in the air about the second coming of the Lord Jesus, you talk about being in heaven. This incredible place to put it back is CCed to be absent from the body is to be present with the low. That's what happens when when you are in Christ because in Christ more is possible than you could ever imagine not, do you know the Lord Jesus. Have you trusted him as your Savior. Have you given him your heart and your life. I'm all askew today to give you life your heart to Jesus to carry through with these two essentials. You might say to me possible is it is it that simple.
He said if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. Believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the bed, you will be say pray for you right now when everybody bow their heads today. Every head bowed and every October father. Right now there are people who are saying I want more, not more money.
All this and more that I just want more this going to be more and today, Lord Jesus. They have come to a fresh understanding that you are more because in Christ more is possible than we could ever imagine. And so right now, Lord Jesus. If there is anybody within the sound of this preacher's voice is listening to the voice of God, which is the only voice that counts under pray that this person would pray this prayer. I'm just going to pray a prayer with you right now and I'm going to invite you to pray this prayer if you want to be say you want Jesus to come in your heart you pray this prayer dear God, I know that Jesus died for me.
I couldn't face that Jesus is Lord and I confess my sin to you today. I repent of my sin. I believe that God raised Jesus from the day I believe that Jesus is alive and today trusting you. I put my faith in you and I receive into my heart in Jesus night now, with nobody looking around private moment. If you prayed that prayer this morning, I want you to just raise your hand up just put it up just pop it up whatever you God bless you and God bless you and God bless you my friend and you to not see you up and about. Just put your hand up quickly and put it down again. God bless you my friend you will look at me folks trying to count but God is, I cannot see God does you know that he he he is to speak and he knows what's in your heart. That's why he sees confess with your mouth and believe in your heart he hears you speak and he knows what's in your heart and if today you have confess that Jesus is Lord and in your heart. You receive Jesus into your life because you believe that God raised him from the day you are saying this is just the beginning. And Jesus said if we can face him publicly before me. You can face us publicly before the father who is in heaven.
