“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.”John 3:16
Faith and belief have eternal significance! There are various views regarding faith, but a predominant theme would relate to trust. Faith and trust would grow for someone in an area when repeated successes occurred, leading to confidence that future activities will be equally successful. It would be good to be born with intrinsic faith and inexhaustible confidence, but we are not. How can someone develop faith, belief, and confidence in their future?
From a Biblical perspective regarding faith, there is a relationship between our belief that there is a God and confidence in His abilities. The Bible teaches us that God is “all-powerful” (Isaiah 40:21), “everywhere” (Isaiah 57:15), and “all-knowing” (Psalm 139:4). Knowing and believing this about God’s qualities helps build our faith, belief, and trust in Him. God loves us and cares about us, and I have faith and belief that He has provided a way into eternity with Him that we can follow. Considering where we spend eternity afterlife on earth ends, it would be good to know what we should believe and where to place our faith that could provide guarantees and certainty!
Would you like to know what you can believe in and where to place your faith that will lead to eternity in heaven? The Bible indicates that faith and belief are the keys to salvation and heaven. The Bible tells us: “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16, NIV). Also, Romans 10:9 (NIV) provides insight: “if you declare with your mouth ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Acts 16:31 says that if we believe in the Lord Jesus, we will be saved. Ephesians 2:8 (NIV) provides further guidance: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it s the gift of God.” Luke 7:50 informs us of a woman who was saved by her faith.
As we read the Bible, we know that if we turn from our sins and seek forgiveness and have faith and belief in Jesus Christ, this will result in salvation and eternal security. Are you willing to trust what the Bible says? Jesus awaits you!
Many blessings to you!
