Evidence of Belief

John 2:18-22 WEB

The Jews therefore answered him, “What sign do you show us, seeing that you do these things?” [19] Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” [20] The Jews therefore said, “It took forty-six years to build this temple! Will you raise it up in three days?” [21] But he spoke of the temple of his body. [22] When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this, and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

Do you believe the scriptures? It is amazing that the disciples walked with Jesus and witnessed the miracles and still did not truly believe the scriptures. To what evidence can a believer turn to measure their level of belief in the Bible? There are many. How much do you read the Bible? Do you obey what you find in the scriptures? Do you pray in opposition to the Word? Do you know the Word, even committing it to memory? It is not hard to check in with ourselves to measure our belief in the Bible. Beliefs are revealed by actions. If we believe in the Bible and what it teaches, we will demonstrate that through our actions. Our faith-filled actions of reading, memorizing, and obeying God’s Word are the evidence of what we hope for, to truly believe the Bible.

Lord Jesus, please give me a greater belief in your Word. Let my actions reveal a strong belief in the Holy Bible. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
