What You Believe Matters
What do you believe? That question is very important because your beliefs impact how you live each day.
Then [Jesus] asked [the disciples], “But who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
─ Matthew 16:15-16 NLT
The word belief means being sure that something you believe in actually exists. We have faith, as Christians, but we also believe that God exists, Jesus came and died for us. He arose from the grave, and He’s preparing a place for us.
Jesus was interested in what His disciples believed. This is the Son of God and He’s asking His disciples who do they believe He is. And Peter answered with revelation from the Heavenly Father and declared Jesus to be the Messiah, Son of the Living God.
Your beliefs impact how you live your life today.
What do you believe about God? What do you believe about Jesus? Do you see evidence in your life by the impact your beliefs have on others?
What do you believe about –
Don’t allow the things of the past or the uncertainties of the future to take you captive today. Today matters, and what you believe matters. You can experience God’s freedom and love today if you’re willing to align your beliefs with God’s truth found in His Word.
