What if I really believed?
What if I read the words of Scripture and believed they were true?
What if I took the account of the creation of the world as genuine?
What if I heard the words, “Jesus loves you” and accepted it as fact?
What if I considered the possibility that God has a divine plan for my life?
What if I concluded that the Holy Spirit of God really does live within me?
What if I knew in my heart that Heaven awaits me because of the cross and the blood of Christ?
What if I acknowledged the stories of eye witnesses that Jesus arose from the dead and is alive, making it a reality that I can live too?
What if I were certain that my life has purpose, that my struggles are strategies to make me stronger, that trials are a testing ground of my faith, that victory is available to me in it all, and that I am more than a conqueror through Christ?
What if I simply believed?
I would live differently. I would rejoice and be glad. I would give thanks in all circumstances. I would love God and love others as I am loved.
It would make all the difference in the world.
Believe and see the glory of God.
