Have a blessed Sabbath!

Faith is not just believing there is a God. We have to trust Him. When I get on a plane, I believe there is a pilot of course, but if for any reason I could not trust him I would quickly walk off again. I have to believe IN him. James takes us back to some of the first principles of the life of Jesus. He wrote about faith. He said “You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that and shudder”, but - they remained demons. (James 2,19 NIV). Christians “look to Jesus the author and finisher of their faith”. Jesus did not give us something to believe, BUT SOMEBODY TO TRUST. Christianity keeps an ancient creed but believes a Person. You can’t sign on the dotted line to make you a Christian. You cannot utter a formal sentence to convert you. It is a matter of the heart, resting on Christ, moment by moment, led by His precious Holy Spirit.
