A man said to Jesus, “Lord I BELIEVE, help my UNBELEIF” (Mark 9:23-24). This too may be our cry before the Lord today. Belief is a discipline that leads into a deeper person relation with Jesus Christ. It connects us to His will for our lives. Our daily prayer should be, Lord help me to BELIEVE and to have the faith to walk out your will in my life today.
Jesus desires through love to stretch people into a greater depth of commitment and BELIEVING. BELIEVING is to be living, growing, and maturing, so that we can bear fruit for Christ glory. Question? Have we become stagnant, like water which has been sitting for too long? Christ’s desire is that we BELIEVE and to become channels of living waters to others? Ask God to stretch your circle of BELIEVING today! AMEN!
The woman at the well heard, BELIEVED, and testified to other of her faith in Jesus Christ. Then the community head and BELIEVED and because of that they received eternal life. Christ proclaimed that “I AM the Bread of life” for all who would BELIEVE they would also receive. Peter would not walk away but confessed and BELIEVED that Christ has the words of eternal life. Now it is our tern what do we believe during this Christmas season.
The truth is that BELIEVING is receiving. Remember that Jesus is the reason for the season, and we need to come to the place of faith and that by BELIEVING we are able to stand before a Holy God because He given to us His righteous One. That Righteous One has a name, JESUS CHRIST, and all we must do is BELIEVE. Question? What keeping you from BELIEVING?
Many people BELIEVED somewhat in the baby Jesus, but when they look into the manger, do they BELIEVE in their hearts that He is the “Son of God”, the “Christ” the “Anointed One” of God, the “Immanuel” who chose to come and to live amongst us and fill us with the Holy Spirit. This is the same question that the Jews struggled with and the people of the world STRUGGLE WITH TODAY. Remember what we BELIEVE will determine one’s eternal destination.
Mary Magdalene encounter the truth, BELIEVED, and rush back to the disciples to tell them that Jesus “is alive”, but at first, they did not BELIEVE, but Christ entered into their presence, face to face and they now truly BELIEVED in their hearts that “He is alive”. This is the Good News, the reason for the season and we need to proclaim it today. I exhort you, BELIEVE for “He is alive”.
God greatest gift, that He desires to give with all His heart, is that we would BELIEVE on His Son Jesus Christ, whom He sent to us, so that we may know Him, understand Him, BELIEVE in Him with our hearts. God wants us all to receive the most precious gift this season, which is His love, grace and mercy, which will come to all who BEIEVE. This I promise to you, just BELIEVE, and receive today!
Life is full of challenges both in the world and with the BELIEVING in Christ Jesus. Believing is always under attack by various enemies, but the key is to stand firm on the Rock of Christ (The anointed One) and BELIEVE that He is pouring forth His living waters to all. BELIEVING is a daily act of faith, trust, and hope. Today rise up and stand firm, BELEIVING in what He has already done and what He will continue to do in our lives in the future.
People love to challenge each other when it comes to faith in Christ Jesus. Most conversation can be boiled down to two positions, unbelieve, or believing. Our choice that we face today is, will we believe in God, like Job, King David, King Hezekiah, or be like Job’s counsellors, Sennacherib, and his army, “it’s our move and choice”.
