|Time Of Christ: Meat Unto Everlasting Life
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
The work of God is more then doing the will of God, though that is part of faith. To do the work of God begins with belief. Belief is meat for the soul. Meat for soul begins with believing in God. The work of God can not begin until belief. Not hardly. To believe in God one must become like a child. A child full of innocents and will believe whatever he/she is taught because the receives it has fact.
Faith is more then then receiving Jesus as Lord but is believing in his ability as Son of God to perform miracles, signs and wonders according to prophesy. It is believe God sent Jesus through prophesy. Israel had the stories of Moses, and believed in the stories of Moses but faith in Moses could not save them. Yet faith in the God that sent Moses to them would.
God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16. One of the most famous Bible verses in the world. Yet the truth is believe is the meat of this verse. It is the hope of salvation that begins faith. Yet it never stops there. To continue is belief is necessary. It great to see a crowd for a revival and to see soul saved, but it sad when the next Sunday the crowd is no longer there. Did belief and conviction get stolen by devil. Did the manna from heaven not remain in the heart for faith.
Believing is a continue work of Godís grace in oneís life. Faith comes when learning to trust God daily for what one needs, to miracles in oneís life. Yet belief begins when one receive Jesus as Lord. An answer prayer is evidence that God is real. It brings hope to non believer, but the devil like to snatch it away by saying it would of happened without prayer.
What you believe will effect your eternity, that is strong truth that can not be changed. Do you believe in Christ today, what is your reason, and what is your evidence. Belief in Jesus begins with the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Some believe it is a psychological event in oneís life and others believe it is the Holy Spirit. Evidence begins with the change and transformation God does in a believers heart first and then in the life.
Dear Heavenly Father change our heart to believe the meat of faith, which is belief. Take our unbelief and convict our hearts to transform us in to people worthy to be called your child. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
