Belief is defined in the dictionary as a state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in some person or thing; something believed; conviction of the truth of some statement or the reality of some being or phenomenon especially when based on examination of evidence; faith; credence.
Biblical belief is when we believe in the Holy Bible as the words of God. Biblical belief is faith in God. Faith in God is believing that God is all who He says that He is.
God defines faith as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Our belief in God is not based on the physical appearance of God, our belief is based on the evidence of things that we have not seen.
Everyone in the world has faith, but NOT everyone in the world has faith in God.
How can we have evidence of things not seen? Through our faith in God we have evidence of things not seen.
When we become a child of God, by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8), we are given understanding by God Himself, through faith we understand.
What a beautiful and powerful scripture!
Through faith we understand - without faith there is no understanding
that the worlds were framed by the word of God - by the word of God all things were created, our universe, everything we know about
so that things which are seen - the world and all that we can see with our own eyes
were not made of things which do appear - were not made by things which we can see, nothing was created by itself, ALL things were made by God
God says belief in God the Father cannot be separated from belief in the Son, because God the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ are one God.
No one can have faith in God the Father without faith in God the Son, Christ Jesus.
No one can have faith in God the Son without faith in God the Father.
There is only one faith, one truth, one way, and one life, and one God. The Father and the Son are one God.
There is One Saviour LORD GOD Jehovah Almighty, and there is none else.
There is One God and there are three that bear record in Heaven, and these three are One, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Only these three are One God, none else.
The teaching of One God in the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is a foundational truth, that every believer must know in their heart and believe, without a doubt, in order to receive the promises of God, because without faith it is impossible to please God. No one is accepted by God unless they believe that He is who He says that He is (Hebrews 11:6).
Believing in Jesus Christ is faith in ALL that He said that He is, in the word of God.
Believing in Jesus Christ is understanding the truth that He is the Son of God.
Believing in Jesus Christ is commitment to following His ways.
Believing in Jesus Christ is the will of God.
A believer of Jesus Christ has placed their complete trust in Jesus as Saviour and Lord of their life.
A believer of Jesus Christ has placed their whole life in God's hands to do with what He will.
A believer of Jesus Christ does not hold anything back from God in their lives. A believer surrenders all we have to Christ. No one can follow Christ except by denying self.
The word of God is full instruction how to believe in Jesus Christ.
Salvation is not words that is said once and then forgotten. Salvation is a relationship with Jesus Christ. Salvation is a discipleship with Jesus Christ.
A believer of Christ Jesus gives their whole life to Christ and serves the will of Jesus instead of their own will.
A believer of Jesus surrenders all to Him, and follows Christ's rules instead of their own self rules.
A believer of Christ surrenders all to Jesus
Without surrendering ALL that one has to Christ, no one is saved.
A believer of Christ denies self
Denying self is putting the ways of Christ, the will of God, before your ways, before your self will.
Believers of Christ Jesus deny their self will and submit to God's will.
A believer of Christ follows righteousness
All people who follow after lust and the sins of the world, who live in sin purposefully every day are NOT following the ways of Jesus.
God says that His children, those saved by His grace through belief in His Son, Jesus Christ DO NOT SIN.
When we choose to sin, in any way whatsoever, we choose NOT to follow Christ.
When we choose to sin, God said we are serving sin and that we CANNOT serve Him and serve sin.
When we choose to sin, we are obeying the lusts of the flesh and serving sin and we are NOT serving Christ.
The children of disobedience, the children of the flesh, who sin without ceasing, are NOT the children of God.
God says that we are servants of whom we obey. We are servants to unrighteousness when we serve sin, or we are servants to righteousness when we serve Christ. We either serve sin or Christ Jesus, God says no one can serve both.
We cannot say that we know God, and serve sin, commit sin on a daily basis, willfully and purposefully sin.
God says that we cannot serve two masters.
God said it doesn't matter who you say that you are, if you sin and live in unrighteousness you will perish, you will die. ALL people living in willful sin will NOT receive everlasting life in the kingdom of God, because the wages of sin is death.
No one is exempt from the word of God, ONLY people who become servants to God (not servants to sin) to the end will have everlasting life.
Just because a person says that they are a Christian, say that they are saved, or that they know God, does NOT mean that they do.
When we deny Christ by disobedience, Jesus will deny us before God the Father, and we will NOT see the kingdom of Heaven, we will die in our sins.
There is no other name in which anyone can be saved from hell.
Salvation is not given by any other name. Only through Jesus Christ of Nazareth is salvation.
If you were born on this world, YOU can believe and be saved.
Jesus died for ALL the people of the world, whosoever believeth, that includes everyone.
No one in the world is excluded from the love of God.
We believe in Jesus Christ with unwavering faith.
We believe in Jesus Christ all the days of our lives.
We believe in Jesus Christ with all our heart we believe in Jesus Christ. Salvation is a heart condition, a renewing of the soul and spirit, a regeneration of the mind.
No, belief in Jesus Christ is inside of you, not inside a building.
You can believe in Jesus Christ without ever stepping one foot inside any church or any building.
So, I don't have to go to church to be a believer of Jesus? You do not need to physically go to a church or any building to be saved, BUT the word of God reads that ALL people who believe in Jesus will assemble themselves together.
We go to church to fellowship with other believers, which is very important to God. If it is important to God, that's good enough for me!
People receive Jesus Christ into their hearts at many different ages.
Is there a correct age to believe in Jesus Christ?
An infant cannot believe in Jesus Christ because they do not know right from wrong, cannot form complete thoughts, or come to conclusions.
Belief in something or someone is a choice. You must be able to choose God to be saved.
Believing in Jesus, being saved, is confessing with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believing in your heart that God raised Him from the dead.
Since an infant cannot talk, they are unable to confess Jesus is Lord and they are unable to understand that God raised Jesus from the dead, they cannot believe from their heart.
(Yes, of course a child or older person who cannot speak can be saved, because they can choose to be saved, believe in their heart and understand that Christ died on a cross for their sins, God raised Jesus from the dead and was resurrected so that they can have eternal life.)
When a child reaches an age of knowing right from wrong, can form thoughts and come to conclusions, they can believe in Jesus Christ.
A child is very precious to our Lord God. In fact, the word of God reads that we are all to come to belief and the knowledge of the Lord as a little child.
God said this because children do things all the way, with all their heart, with all their soul, with all their might. They do not hold anything back. And that's how God wants us.
Children are sincere and totally committed, with no reservations and pure of heart and love.
We as adults must have total commitment, love, trust and faith with all our hearts, just as a little child.
This is how God wants us ALL to come to Him, wholehearted, nothing wavered, nothing held back, total committed, sincerely with all our heart, and with all our soul and with all our mind and with all our strength.
Why as a little child? A child is totally dependent on other people for their life and that is exactly how God wants all of us to come to Him, us surrendering all to Him. God wants all our love and all our trust, just as a little child.
Only Christ can give eternal life, we must realize that we are nothing without Him.
We must know that we cannot make it on our own, we must know without a doubt that by our self we are doomed to death, to perish, but with Christ, through believing in Jesus we can receive everlasting life.
We are not to think that we are more than we are. We are nothing without Christ and we must know this and believe this with all our heart in order to receive salvation.
Is a believer a Christian?
Believers are called CHRISTians, because they believe in the gospel of Christ.
Although many people today call themselves Christians, who do not believe in Christ or the doctrine of Christ or even in the word of God.
As true believers of Christ Jesus as Lord of our lives, we should not get hung up on labeling ourselves. God is interested in your heart, not what we call ourselves.
God wants us to grow in Christ and to exercise our faith and love, not our denomination name.
Lord Christ Jesus wants to have a relationship with us, not a religion. No where in the word of God, does God tell us He wants us to have a religion with us.
God is concerned about our heart condition, our relationship with His Son, not which church we belong to or what religion we say that we are.
Some people get so wrapped up in their denomination and their church, that they forget that they are the children of God, and why they have a church to begin with, which is to bring Glory to God and to worship their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who set them free from sin and worries of this world. Church should never be a social club.
The whole reason that we are born, and are born-again, is to bring Glory to God, as His faithful children.
The reason we are here is to bring glory to God as His righteous children.
True believers of Christ Jesus, are the children of God, the children of the Kingdom of God, the children of the bridechamber, the children of the Highest, the children of Light, the children of the resurrection, the children of the prophets, the children of the covenant, the children of the Living God, the children of Abraham, the children of Promise, the children of the day, the children of the LORD God, the children of our Father in Heaven.
By faith, believing in Christ Jesus as Lord, we are the children of God.
The children of God put on Christ.
When we put on Christ Jesus, we are no nationality, no separate race from one another, no separate denomination, no separate religion, not bond nor free, not male or female, when we put on Christ Jesus we are all ONE in Christ Jesus.
If we are Christ's believers, we are all the same in Christ, we are all Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise of God.
As believers of Christ Jesus, we become heirs to the promise of the Kingdom of God and the fullness of God, through adoption into the family of God by Jesus, we are adopted sons and daughters of God through Christ Jesus.
Because of Christ Jesus we can cry Abba, our Father and our God.
As believer of Christ Jesus, we know that we are the children of God because we live in righteousness and love, and we love God and we keep His commandments.
Belief in God is from the heart, not the lips. Calling yourself a Christian, does not make you saved.
Admitting you are a sinner, praying to God for forgiveness of your sins, repenting of your sins, and asking Jesus into your heart to be the Lord and Master of your life, asking honestly and truthfully from your deepest heart, is how one becomes a believer of Christ.
The word of God gives us descriptions of the believers of Christ Jesus, along with descriptions of non-believers of Christ.
Believers are people who have chosen to follow Christ, chosen to belong to God through salvation by grace through faith in Christ Jesus.
Believers are the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus, both men and women.
The true believers of Christ Jesus cannot be numbered, as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered.
Since GOD created mankind some 6,000 years ago, there have been believers of God.
No one knows the number of the saved, except God.
Today there is an estimate of over 7 billion people in this world, of which not all even today are believers of Christ and will not see the Kingdom of God.
We know from the word of God that there are multitude of believers in Heaven today with God.
Most of us have loved ones, who are believers and who have died, and are with the Lord God today.
God promises us that one day we will be reunited with those believers, who have passed on to Glory.
