If I were to ask you this question – who do you think Jesus Christ is? What would you say?
I know some of you would say a great man, others may say a man of true love, many would agree He is the son of God, a few would say He is God.
To mentally agree that Jesus is the son of God does not mean you believe. This was the case with His disciples for most of Jesus ministry on earth. John 14 reveals when they finally believed. The truth is that majority of Christians only mentally agree that Jesus is Lord. This why many only see Him as the man on the cross, not the God (my God) who seats at the right hand of His majesty ever living to intercede on our behalf.
So what does it mean to believe: “For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” – Romans 10:10 (NKJV)
Now if you only mentally agree that Jesus is the son of God, you are not far from salvation but take the next step of faith and with a conviction in your inner witness accept the living word, that is Christ Jesus who is able engraft a seed (the word of life) within you that is able teach you a different nature of living and build within you a nature different from what your environment (the world) has been installing in you since birth. This seed is what can save you from the corruption and decay you see around in this world.
Are you just mentally agreeing that Jesus is the son of God? Do really think that His life can save you? Now is a chance to be convicted about this Jesus. Now is the time to be convinced about His undeniable truth.
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.” -1 John 3:16 (NIV)
If you are convinced of this truth, the love of Christ lives in you and by Him you are saved. Enter into this love and by Him receive with meekness the living word which is able to transform your mind from it’s lustful desires into the desires of love, true love in Christ Jesus. “For God is love and whoever lives in love lives in Him” – Apostle John.
