It’s A Wonderful Life, When You Truly Believe

Luke 1:26-35 & Matt. 1:18-25 (KJV)

Truly believing in Jesus, His gift of salvation and His ongoing work in our lives is an issue of the heart. (Rom. 10:9-10)

As the little boy did in the movie, Polar Express, those who truly believe:

  1. Hear what others don’t hear. For the Christian, it is the voice of the Lord.
  2. Experience what others don’t experience. For the Christian, it is the Spirit of the Lord.

What is it that prevents some from truly believing?

  1. Fear prevents some from truly believing in the Lord and all He has in store for them. (Luke 1:30, Matt. 1:20)
  2. Facts prevent some from truly believing in the Lord and all that He can provide for them. (Luke 1:34)

When sickness comes, believe in Jesus!
When finances are struggling, believe in Jesus!
When death occurs, believe in Jesus!
When relationships fail, believe in Jesus!
When things seem hopeless, believe in Jesus!

Remember, the Lord specializes in taking the ordinary and doing something extraordinary!
