We say we believe in God. We say the Bible is God’s Word. We say this changes our lives. What a lot of people really mean is: I hope there is a God. Some of the Bible could be His Word. I would like for my life to be better!
If we really believe that God is real, that He has spoken to us through our Bibles and that our lives can change both now and for eternity, then that has to mean a life lived differently every moment of every day.
I am not talking about being a “Holy Roller”! I simply saying: If we really believe what we say we believe, then what matters to God will matter to us! When reading the Bible, it does not take you very long to start figuring out what God cares and is concerned about.
Take for an example just a small part of the prayer that Jesus prayed in John 17:20-23 “20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” Jesus is praying for people who believe and He is praying for UNITY – that they be ONE, because when we allow God to bring us together, it brings great glory to Him and blessings to all!
Jesus would not have prayed for UNITY if it was not very important! It would not be in our Bibles, if it did not matter! Jesus prayed it and the Holy Spirit put it into print, because this is the goal of our lives here on this earth!
If we really believe, we will stop playing the games that we tend to love to pray and come together to accomplish something supernatural and glorious for our God and King! Do you really believe? Prove it!
