Who cares what you believe






TALK, TALK, TALK … The airwaves are full of sound. 

If you have ever listened to talk radio programs, you will hear the sound.  I think this and I believe that, talk, talk, talk…

Who really cares what you believe, is a common response. Nevertheless, let's look into this a bit further. Perhaps someone is watching after all, watching and testing you to discover this very thing.

 

The devil cares what you believe. If you believe he does not exist, he has free access.  If you believe he has no influence over your thoughts, the world around you and those you love, he has a hunting license.

 

God cares what you believe. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose hearts are blameless toward him.i

God responds to faith. His angels respond to His word spoken in faith.ii  Without faith, it is impossible to please God.iii

 

You also need to care what you believe. As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.iv Also, according to your faith be it done to you!v


The next time you say I believe, stop and think.  Do YOU REALLY believe that? You may be in for a surprise!


You may find things that you really do not believe are true after all. You may discover that you have just been acquiescing to those around you.

You may find things you only hope are true, in other words, you want to believe them.

You may find things you say you believe, but under scrutiny realize you must not believe them or your actions would be much different.  You may in fact uncover areas where you are deceiving yourself.vi

 

So why is it important for you to question what you truly believe?  Consider the following:

For truly I say to you, That whoever shall say to this mountain, Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he said.vii

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 

And whatsoever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

If you shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.viii


It is truly important to know what you believe.  When you do, you will have an answer for those who say …

 

Who cares what you believe?
