Imagine yourself trying to console someone who is going through intense pain and battling other complicated situations. You humbly ask him/her; “do you believe in God?.” This fellow looks at you intently and rudely ask “what kind of God are you talking about?.” There are thousands of goods available.”
Uh oh, that’s like a time bomb…explosive, unbelievable, awful and embarrassing.
Hold your tongue. This dude really knows what he is talking about. He is pretty much convinced that believing in a supreme being is stupid.
Know that you are right there with an atheist or one notorious nonbeliever. Be very careful because this kind of people can disillusion you. All he can say is “there is no God” “God does not exist” as if he has been everywhere.
It’s not by a compulsion to believe in God. You have that gift of free will. In this case, you don’t feel any kind of restrictions when you decide to do evil.
It doesn’t justify your rebellious and disobedient life. To the nonbeliever… Someone is watching you… You wouldn’t go unpunished if there is nothing like repentance.
In this post, I want to draw the attention of all Christians around the world that it is right to believe in God.There is no shame in thet. The Devil will oppose you with his crafty devices. His agents will likely ridicule your belief in God. Do you feel like it’s a kind of religious conception to imprison/control your mind?.
Wait for a minute. Religion is a man-made thing but the word of God(Bible) has everything you need to enjoy the amazing plan and reward God has for you; for believing in him and doing his will.
How Did You End Up Believing In God?
Life is something interesting, sometimes funny with illogical thoughts. Consider the fact that many people believe in God because of so many irrelevant reasons without genuine intention and dedication. It’s not fun.
Some of us were born into Christianity. We have tested and found it worthy. The word of God and his amazing salvation plan has become part of our DNA.
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).
Let me take a minute and ask you; “do you believe in God?.” Yes or No?. Keep the answer to yourself while I feed you with raw Biblical fact for you to fight it against the truth.
Did you believe just because you were born into a Christian family?. Did you believe just because others believe?. Is it because you fear God’s fierce anger? Or you want to please someone and feel accepted etc?. God has already chosen everyone who loves him. This is the reason why he sent his only begotten son to come and die for us.
Unfortunately, that is entirely different on the side of most people. How?. They have refused to choose God and believe in him. They love to challenge the existence of God.
There should be a genuine choice or decision to follow Christ Jesus. You and I cannot see God, yet we boldly claim we believe in him. What is the reason behind your decision?.
There is a song that goes like: “I have decided to follow Jesus… No turning back.” It’s a choice and today I want to encourage you that you have made the best choice any living being could make. You are right. Just wait to see how your faith in God will yield greater reward for you now and forevermore.
What I Fear For Christian Believers
The nonbeliever may use worldly wisdom to convince new converts as well as the lost sheep that; believing in a supreme creator is a frivolous act.
Know your stand, my dear, don’t be lukewarm for this world is eventually coming to an end.
It’s a challenging situation for many Christian believers to keep on worshiping God when prayers go unanswered. It becomes questionable when temptations, pains, and sorrows become aggravated.
Should this be the reason why you should give up on God?. My dear dare not make such a deadly mistake.
The secret behind this is simple: Lucifer is always looking for more souls. He is indeed roaring like a lion looking for people to devour. I pray you don’t fall victim. I want to highlight and explain to you why you are absolutely right to believe in God.
Don’t Be Confused
Someone told you there is no God and you believed this lies?. Worldly wisdom can infiltrate your mind to forfeit your salvation in Christ Jesus. Those lies are sugar-coated words from the pit of hell.
“I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn’t; than live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is” — Albert Camus
You are right to believe in God because he has revealed himself through his creation. Nature tells us about a supreme being who deserves our worship and praises.
“Where is the wise man? Where is the expert in the Mosaic law? Where is the debater of this age? Has God not made the wisdom of the world foolish?. For since in the wisdom of God, the world by its wisdom did not know God, God was pleased to save those who believe by the foolishness of preaching.” (1Corinthians 1:20–2)
Let not your faith faint and slip off of God’s salvation plan for yourself. Although there are Christian persecutions in a number of countries today. Pray for them. Don’t allow that to discourage you or force you to quit being a believer. Stay blessed.
