- John 11:25
Belief is an important thing; at some level belief is investment. When we believe in something, we invest our lives in it. It doesn’t matter whether it is a vocation, religion, or hobby: when we believe it is important we invest in it.
Throughout our lives we are encouraged to believe in many things: love, science, education, etc. At some point in our lives we realize that the stakes in life are pretty high and we wonder about our belief in God. This leads us to questions about Jesus Christ. What do we think of Him? Since is it mostly Christians who are reading this my guess would be that most would say, “Jesus is God’s Son, He is the Lord.” This response is great, but not very telling. What is telling is the investment that comes with this statement. As you believe in Jesus are you investing in Him, His church, and His Kingdom? Another way to ask it is this: do you walk the walk as well as talk the talk. Here’s what is at stake - life. It’s a simple mathematical equation: belief in Christ leads to life. Let’s say it a different way: investment leads to life; investment in Christ leads to life.
Today ask yourselves - how is my investment in Christ? If investment leads to life, are you confident in your life with Christ?
