It is not enough to believe in God, even Satan and his minions believe in God. It is not even enough to believe that Jesus is the Son of God, even Satan and his demons believe that Jesus is God, and we know that Satan and his followers will not spend eternity with God, they will not enjoy eternal life. No, in order to have eternal life, we must believe Him. We must place all of our hope, all of our trust, all of our faith in Him, in His promises. Do you believe Him? Do you live your life as if all of His promises are true – for you? If not, you are not walking in faith. And without faith, it is impossible to please Him. Without faith, none of these promises are true for you. Without faith, you will surely perish.
