“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God.”
1 John 5:1a, 11 (NLT2)
TRUST GOD’S SON
I believe in a physician when I put my care into that physician’s hands and trust him to cure me. I believe in a lawyer when I leave my case in his hands and trust him to plead for me. I believe in a banker when I put money into his hands and allow him to keep it on my behalf.
I believe in Jesus when I take Him to be my Savior, when I put my helpless case into His hands, and trust Him to do what I cannot do for myself—save me from my sin. Have you done so? You believe there is such a person as Jesus, and that He is the sinner’s Savior. You do well; but that is only a partial and incomplete faith. To believe that a certain doctor exists and has a large practice is not to believe personally in that doctor. (unknown)
God’s winning game plan for us begins with believing that Jesus is God’s Son and that He is the Christ. “Christ” means the sent one. Saving faith is believing that Jesus was sent by the Father to die for our sins. Saving faith is also acting on what we know intellectually and trusting Jesus with our soul.
Have you put your trust in Jesus’ hands? If so, the Bible says you are a child of God. If not, you should do it today. Move from a head knowledge of Jesus to an actual saving relationship with Him.
