How Can You Believe?

Jesus had many thing to say about faith. Things like moving mountains, seeing the unseen, living a life worth meaning. He also contemplated to his followers whether He would be able find any faith on earth when He comes back!

So how is your faith? Is it the backbone of your life or an appendage?

Jesus made a statement to a group of religious people one day about faith:

How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the
one and only God? John 5:44

Most of us have the tendency of flowing with the tide. We take our lead from the people around us and adapt our behavior to our perceived expectation of these people. This is not a bad thing for the world's values but God has designed a life far higher for His people.

The roller-coaster existence of adapting to people's expectations has become almost natural due to years of practice under this system.

Jesus asked, "How can you believe?" when you live like this!

It is a scary thing to live by faith. It requires that we break from our "normal" and comfortable and accept the unknown. We simply cannot perceive all of the things that God has in store for us when we take the bold step of living by faith.

We will know we have begun to move toward living by faith when we adjust from seeking approval from others to seeking approval from our God!

The Kingdom is wide open for those who will choose to live by faith!
