As we look ahead to Sunday, I will speak on Do you Really Believe, from John 8. Our Lord mentions that the Jews believe on Him and then through a series of statements reminds them that they really do not believe at all. We will also observe the Lord’s Table in the morning. On Sunday night, Missionary Tim Brennan will be our special guest. We have supported Tim and Faith for many years and look forward to their report and ministry at our 6 PM service.
I’ve been thinking …
Most people believe in God and believe many things about God, the Bible, and Jesus Christ. Scripture reminds us that the Devil and his demons believe in God. There are a number of occasions where the Bible states that one believed, yet they were not truly born again. As our Lord dealt with the Jews in His day, He reminded them that there was “more to it” than just believing in God. Today, it is no different. While it is true, that all one must do is “believe” in the Lord Jesus Christ and one will be saved (Acts 16:31), there is “more to it,” to believe is not enough. Let me explain… on Sunday!
