Over the last few months, I spent a lot of time praying and seeking God about unbelief and belief. As the Holy Spirit has revealed unbelief in my heart from my past, it surely has been a painful experience. The greatest thing he wants to do in our heart (assuming you're a Christian) is to simply believe in Jesus. As I understand the Greek, he wants us to "continually believe" Him. It also means to continually trust, continually have confidence, and continually obey Him.Let's believe Him continously with all of our heart, soul, and mind. Although faith without works is dead (James 2), our works spring out of our faith. It is never the other way around.
John 6:28, 29 (AMP) Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?" Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
well said, Gideons.
