Belief is the Validation of Life

Belief is the Validation of Life

Two of the basic spiritual and emotional needs in life are to believe in something and to have someone believe in you.  When you believe in God, believe in yourself, and in others, you will experience contentment that cannot come from any other source.

God doesn’t even attempt to prove or validate His existence.  He simply says, “I AM!”  The Bible says, “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.” Psalm 14:1 Those who deny the existence of God are rejecting the substance of life itself.  Jesus said, “…If you believe in God, believe also in me…I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life.”     John 14:1,6

I John 5:12-13

“He that hath the Son hath life:  and He that hath not the Son hath not life.  These things are written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

It isn’t enough to know what your parents and grandparents believed.  You can’t inherit their faith.  You must believe for yourself.

  • I have some trivia for you, which requires honest answers: 2nd Question: Does your lifestyle back up what you say you believe? 3rd Question: Do you know what you believe and why you believe it? The answer to the last two questions will reveal the answer to the first question. If “no” is your final answer, you are in trouble. The foundation of your belief system will never withstand the scrutiny of doubt and skepticism until you know what you believe and why you believe it. What I believe makes me who I am.
  • 1st Question: Do you really believe what you say you believe?
  • Use a concordance and research the importance of the word “believe” throughout the Scriptures. Discover truth for yourself and your faith will take off like a rocket. Truth becomes a part of you when you believe.

“Jesus said, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23
