Believing is the backbone of the Christian faith. In reference Acts 16:31, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household,” if we look up the ancient Greet text for the word “believe” in this context, we will find it actually translates to “he who is believing.” Given that fact, we can conclude that “believe” is an active word, not a passive one. It’s not just understanding something to be true, it’s living it; it’s believing enough to take action – enough to go out and show the world, and even die for that belief. In fact, if we look up the word “believe” in the Dictionary, we will find it’s a verb.
When Ja’irus was informed that his daughter had died, Jesus still went to his house. He told the ruler of the synagogue not to fear but believe. That sick little girl rose from the dead that very day. Faith is a powerful thing, and it heals us. Faith can move mountains. As long as we believe that God is the one in control, that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Father and the true mediator, and we’re showing that to the world through our actions and words, nothing should make us anxious. Christ is on our side; fear not. Believe!
