Faith In Action ‘Believe’

We learn from the Gospel Of John. John is ‘the disciple mentioned as whom, Jesus loved {John 13 verse 23, 21 verse 7} John walks as closely with Jesus as anyone, seeing first hand how Jesus relates to God and what Jesus teaches about the way things are in His Kingdom, and John is so close to Jesus, he is able to share some of Jesus’ most intimate conversations with The father.

John presents Jesus as the Word, the Messiah and the Incarnate Son of God, who has come to reveal the Father and bring eternal life to all who believe in Him.
Before the fall, (Adam and Eve’s betrayal in Eden), God and His friends were close.
God walked with them in the Garden, and they talked friend to friend.
Due to the infection of sin brought on by the fall, Adam and Eve had to leave the Garden and God’s Presence. Things were no longer as they were meant to be.

However, God was determined to restore what had been lost.

John’s teachings are to lead believers into a life of divine friendship with Our Lord and Our Friend.
The key word in this Gospel is ‘Believe’. It is so important that it can be discovered  98 times in the Gospel of John. Like a parent repeating the same set of instructions to their teenager to lodge it in their minds, so too is God trying to draw your attention to just how important belief is.

And it is open to anyone {any whomsoever} John 3 Verse 16:

“For God so loved the world in this way, He gave His one and Only Son, so that everyone {any whomsoever}who Believes in Him would not perish but have eternal life”.

Believe and Seek: Hebrews 11 Verse 6: “Now without faith, it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him Must BELIEVE that He exists and rewards those who seek Him’.

God Bless
