Matthew Chapter 15 : 11-20 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 11 That which enters into the mouth doesn't defile the man; but that which proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man."
  • 12 Then the disciples came, and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended, when they heard this saying?"
  • 13 But he answered, "Every plant which my heavenly Father didn't plant will be uprooted.
  • 14 Leave them alone. They are blind guides of the blind. If the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit."
  • 15 Peter answered him, "Explain the parable to us."
  • 16 So Jesus said, "Do you also still not understand?
  • 17 Don't you understand that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the belly, and then out of the body?
  • 18 But the things which proceed out of the mouth come out of the heart, and they defile the man.
  • 19 For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual sins, thefts, false testimony, and blasphemies.
  • 20 These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands doesn't defile the man."
  • Webster's Bible [WB]
  • 11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
  • 12 Then came his disciples, and said to him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended after they heard this saying?
  • 13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be extirpated.
  • 14 Let them alone: they are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leadeth the blind, both will fall into the ditch.
  • 15 Then answered Peter and said to him, Declare to us this parable.
  • 16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
  • 17 Do ye not yet understand, that whatever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
  • 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
  • 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
  • 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obiendience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
