B is for Believe

You believe that there is one God.  Good!  Even the demons believe that–and shudder.  James 2:19, NIV

I believe there is one God.  I believe that He sent His one and only Son to earth, to be born in a manger, to be raised by a poor carpenter and his wife, and to be brutally murdered in my place.

But belief is not enough.

Even the demons believe the things that I do.  The trick–if you want to call it a trick–is to act on what I believe.  What good do beliefs of any kind do if those beliefs are not put into practice?

  1. Oh, thank you for this post! This is something I really needed to see {again} and be reminded of! It so goes along with a couple of my favorites quotes, “Actions speak louder than words,” and “Your actions speak so loudly, I cannot hear what you are saying!” It is one thing to say that we believe, it is another thing completely to show what we believe.

    • Exactly!!! I’ve had people tell me that they believe in God, but their actions don’t show that they are living out that belief. I wonder how different our world would be if everyone who claims a belief in Christ acted in His love….

  2. Oh, Amen!! I love this! I think that is one of the reasons I started my blog…to share God with the world, instead of just believing in Him. He believed so much in me that He did something about it…He sent His Son to die for me! What an amazing act to show how much He believed in me. Thank you so much for sharing this! Anyone reading this is truly blessed :)

    Blessings to you!
