Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God (1 John 5:5)?
Believing in something is not the same as thinking, concurring, being in agreement with, being persuaded, or giving assent to the idea that Jesus is the Son of God. I feel so sorry for the people who know so much about God, yet do not know Him personally. They think they’re on the right path, but that path does not lead them to the Throne Room of God.
Believing in Jesus means He has stopped being an “idea” and has become someone more real, more genuine, more reliable than anyone or anything else in your life. Believing in Jesus takes you right into the Throne Room and makes you comfortable there. Believing in Jesus reveals your own position in the family of God: you, too, are His son or daughter. Jesus paid the price, extracted you from your place in slavery, and brought you Home. You know it, too. You know who you belong to. If you don’t know it, then you are not a believer.
But if you are, act like it. Visit the Throne Room of God whenever you want, receive His counsel and advice, then go into the world and do what He said. In this way you will never fail.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
