Text: 1 Peter 2:6
Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
Read: John 3:10-17
The belief system helps to interpret everyday reality. What you believe has a lot to do with your being. As he thinks in his heart, so he is. No one transcends consciously the limit of his thought or belief.
The Lord had revealed to man the consequences of the sin man committed. Man lived in the same consequences believing it to be true. Then the Lord made a way of escape in the death of one without sin for the sin that was committed by the sinner. Once the sin was paid for, the consequences of the sin stand suspended or removed. But then, when a bird is used to being tied to a stake, it loses the consciousness of the ability to fly and soar even when it had been released from the stake, unless and until someone through some special act or real danger compels it to attempt to fly. This state is true of mankind.
The Lord through the death of His only begotten Son has ransomed mankind from the bondage of sin. All that is needed honestly is for us to believe that the snare has been broken and therefore we are free. For this, Christ raised witnesses and has, through them, been telling everyone to believe and be free. That which has been done is based on spiritual phenomenon. Those who have failed to understand simple earthly things also fail to comprehend the spiritual matters.
The death and resurrection of Christ is to set you free from the bondage of sin and yoke of the devil. Unless you believe in it, you cannot benefit from it. Your believing in it will make you to yield your life to obey God through the teachings of Him that successfully lived without sin. Just believe and you will start to soar in life.
Father, I do believe: please help my unbelief that I may live a better life from now in you in Jesus Mighty Name.
