It’s a beautiful day. Hope you enjoyed your weekend? I sure did! I wanna share this very brief verse with everyone and you happened to be among them. Please it will really make a big sense, if you slowly follow me down to this passage.
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.”
Whoever! Whether he is a Muslim, a terrorist, a traditionalist, a prostitute, an armed robber, a murderer, a liar, a cheat and still counting! Whoever hears the words of Jesus, and believe in what he hears and in God… He has passed from death to life!
Hearing God’s word is not enough, it should be believed! Knowledge is. Sealed with belief! Whatever you don’t believe is not yet knowledge. What proves you know it is when you make mastery of what you belief. Knowledge is power only when it is applied! You can’t apply what you don’t believe. So it does not just end in reading and hearing, it must be believed for it to have effect on you!
What does that mean? The knowledge of God’s word has the ability to cross you from death to life. It has the ability to tun your business around, it has the ability to change situations and transfer you from the dying state to a living state. What God requires from you is believe! Why is believing more important than Good works? You see, in the Old Testament, good-works is required for you to be saved but no one was able to faithfully do it! But in the new testament, believing is the only thing needed! How? Why? Jesus said to the Samaritan woman “you worship what you do not know…” John 4:22 Until you believe in him and his word, you cannot know him, until you know him, you cannot function in him.
Do you wanna pass from death to life? Just believe in the word of God and also believe in the God of the word!
