If you believe God, will you act on that belief?
There are a majority of people in this country who believe in God, as well as those who claim to believe what God says in His Word. For many years there was a popular bumper sticker that said “God said it, I believe it, and that settles it.”
Yet, if you were to ask those same people if their belief in what God says has made a revolutionary change in their lives, the number of people who said yes to this question would likely be much smaller. The term believer means that you believe what God has promised you in the Bible about what Jesus has done for you, about His shed blood, about forgiveness of your sins, and about death and eternal life. But God demands more from those that He calls His own.
A true believer will take what God says, internalize it, and then act upon it. The promises that God makes to us will create a revolution in the life of person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. They will view life differently. They will view death differently. The things that were once important to them are no longer important. There are new things that are the focus of their lives, things that God wants you to accomplish. Things that you want to accomplish for God, because of your love for Him. You will take what God has said, and because you believe it is true, you will act upon it in your life. You will create works for God and through God.
