Do You Believe in Jesus?

 

The truth is, only God knows what is in the human heart. Only God knows who "really" believes in His Son. Someone may say they believe, and even be convinced themselves, but only God knows for sure who truly believes.

However, we can talk about what it means to truly believe because God's Word, the Bible, tells us. First, we must believe that Jesus is who He said He is, and believe what the Bible says about Him. Jesus is the Son of God - that means He is God, just like the Father is God - Jesus is God the Son. Also, Jesus became a man and lived a sinless life and then died for our sins on the cross. But Jesus didn't remain dead - He rose from the grave, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and promises that everyone who believes in Him will live with Him forever in heaven.

Jesus also says that those who acknowledge Him, or confess to others that they believe and have faith in Him, He will also confess that person before the angels of God, but whoever denies Him before others, He will deny them before the angels of God. (Luke 12:8,9) So, if we say that we believe in Jesus, then we will tell other people that we believe in Him.

Also, Jesus says that those who love Him will obey Him and keep His commandments. So that means that if you truly believe, you will do your very best to follow Jesus every day.

One more thing - if you truly believe, then you will naturally speak to God and Jesus in prayer on a regular basis, and seek to know Him better by reading the Bible and listening to teachings about the Lord from those who you trust are also believers.

So, even though only God knows who truly believe in Him in their hearts, the Bible clearly tells us that true believers will follow Jesus, talk to Him, and confess to others that they have faith and hope in the Son of God for eternal life.

With all that in mind, let me ask my question again. Do you believe in Jesus? If not, or if you are not totally sure, why not? I encourage you to give very serious thought to this question. I believe it is the most important thing we have to do while we are on this earth, and none of us knows how long we have to make up our minds. So please, don't put it off.

If you have questions, please find someone you can ask, or feel free to send me a message.
