Do You Believe? Prove It.

I say I believe in God, that I believe in Jesus His son. I say that I believe so much that I would give my life for what I believe in, but do I really?

I ran across this video by Francis Chan and it made me really think. Do I truly believe, or are the words, “I believe” the answer I give myself so I don’t have to ask myself the hard questions? And if I do believe, what evidence is there in my life? If I took my “belief” out of my life, would there be a difference? Would anyone be able to tell?

If the answer is no, then I have some decisions to make.

    Man, Moon, Chan really has a point here. Tozer once said that we often talk a lot about trusting Christ with our lives and then skillfully arranging our lives in such a way that this “trust” is never forced to the test. Ouch.

    Tozer can cut right to the point. And man is it true. The rich ruler found that out. “Do I really believe and trust enoigh to go all in?” Deep thoughts.

    Wow, bro; super thought-provoking! Chris, Tozer is right, we get very good at orchestrating safe livelihoods.
