John 14 v 1 is a very interesting verse if you think about it.
It tells us that there is a difference in believing in God and believing in Jesus.
I’ve encountered this a number of times when people tell me that they “believe in God” yet very clearly are not interested in and do not believe in Jesus.
Believing in God or not believing in God is irrelevant in the overall scheme of things; the important thing in our life is what we “do” with Jesus.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, so trust in and belief in Jesus is the only way to the Father and to an eternity of security and love (John 14 v 6).
This section of John (chapters 14 to 16) is the last chance that Jesus had to talk to His disciples before His death, so He would have taken the opportunity to tell them really important things.
That He was the way, the truth and the life and the only way to the Father is among the first things He tells them (John 14 v 6).
Salvation comes through trust and belief in Jesus and the fact that God raised Him from the dead, it has nothing to do with believing in God (Romans 10 v 9).
I was on a trip recently (with many unbelievers) and texted Nunsy to say that we had been speaking about church and God; she replied, “Have you spoken about Jesus yet?”
That was an incredibly important point, had I spoken about Jesus yet?
It is not that speaking about God or church is not also important, but the truth about Jesus and His finished work is the key to salvation.
Let’s speak about Jesus more!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ, thank you that He is the way, the truth and the life”.
John 14 v 1…..Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me
