2 Beliefs Vital to Every Christian

English Audio Version

We are told that if we believe we can do a thing, it moves into the realm of possibility for us.

Remember The Little Train Who Could. “I think I can do it …” soon becomes “I know I can do it.”

It centers around our faith … in God … in ourselves … in what we’ve been promised by people, circumstances, and our own expectations.

Hebrews 11:6 says that “I know I can” applies to our relationship with the Father, also.

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

Having a spiritual awareness of a greater force in the universe is a start, but we’ve got to step it up.

We must graduate to the next level.

Just believing in God isn’t enough. To please him, we must grasp 2 Beliefs Vital to Every Christian.

Belief No. 1:

We must believe that God exists, that he is who he says he is, and that he sent his Son to stand in our place and provide a redemption for our sins by his sacrifice on the cross.

God is not a celestial force benignly ordering the universe. He is much, much more.

Belief No. 2:

We must believe that God will reward us when we look for him; study the Bible to learn his nature; and strive to order our lives in accordance with the example we find in Christ.

God desires our obedience, not our sacrifice. He wants our praise, our trust, and our time.

God wants to be at the center of who we are.

Believing in God is just the start. We’ve got a lot of him to explore.
