This afternoon I was led to John 14 looking for some Scriptures to use as I was preparing for a funeral.
The start of John 14 is a passage of great comfort to the believer; it is also a call to live a life of peace in the assurances we have from the Lord.
We can choose to let our heart not be troubled.
We can do this if we believe in God and also believe in Jesus.
This is an important point, as believing in God is not the same as believing in Jesus.
Many people say the most important question in life is, “Do you believe in God?”
To be honest that is not the most important, far more important is, “Do you believe in Jesus?”
The Word tells us that even the demons believe in God, that kind of “faith” will not save you.
Salvation and an eternity with God will come through faith in and trust in Jesus (Romans 19 v 9).
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and He is the only way to the Father (John 14 v 6).
Whether you believe in the existence of God is not important in an eternal context.
The important point with regards to eternity is what you believe about Jesus.
So the next time you are talking about the existence or not of God with someone, make sure you get the conversation around to Jesus.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ and thank you that He is the way to a secure eternity”.
John 14 v 1…..Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me
