Believe what? Believe who?
Believe Santa is real? Believe this chair will hold me when I sit down? Believe I will win the Power Ball?
Every time I see that word used in so many ways and written on so many objects I think to myself and sometimes audibly say “believe what? who?”
Do you think belief and trust are the same thing? They are both elusive in that you can’t hold them in your hand, and yet we act on those words every day. I guess the answer is unique to each person, but I tell you the truth…“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:31
As you believe on Him and in Him, every part of your life will be affected. You will walk in The Light because He is Light. He is Truth! And because of your daily walk in His Light your family and friends will see that your belief in Jesus Christ as Savior is truth.
The young people at my church sang a song written in 2013 by the Newsboys (Hooper,Fike & Ryan) and the following is part of that song entitled We Believe.
“In this time of desperation when all we know is doubt and fear, there is only one foundation. We believe. We believe. In this broken generation, when all is dark, You help us see, there is only one salvation. We believe. We believe.
We believe in God the Father….We believe in Jesus Christ….We believe in the Holy Spirit, and He’s given us new life.
We believe in the Crucifixion….We believe that He conquered death….We believe in the resurrection, and He’s coming back again. We believe.
So let our faith be more than anthems, greater than the songs we sing. And in our weakness and temptations, we believe….we believe.
Let the lost be found and the dead be raised. In the here and now let love invade. Let the church live loud. Our God, we’ll say, we believe.
And the gates of hell will not prevail, for the power of God has torn the veil. Now we know Your love will never fail. We believe. We believe.
AND HE’S COMING BACK AGAIN !! WE BELIEVE !!!”
