Have you just ever stopped to ask yourself what is it that you believe and what makes you believe in a thing? Do you really know what the Bible says about believing?
You know when we were children if our parents said it, we believed it because they were our parents and they took care of us. So how much more should we believe what the unadulterated word of God says? After all, once we came into the knowledge of HIM we began to understand that HE takes care of us right.
Romans 10:9 states:
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
King James Version (KJV)
That scripture is the basis for our whole life. Webster defines belief as: A state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in someone or thing. What really stuck out to me about this particular definition was the habit of mind. A habit is: a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up. A settled or regular practice…it requires our participation. Belief is active. We have to DO something. Hmm. That is all!
