Imagine that you have a great plot, in which you are planting potatoes each year. And all of a sudden one day you will find out that, according to geological studies in the area where is located your plot, deep underground, should be gold deposits.
Do you believe it?
Perhaps you will say: “Yes, I believe, but now I have to think about it, it is necessary to go plant potatoes”. Does this mean that you really believe? No, of course. This is just a Word. If you truly believe you will begin to think not about the potatoes, and that much more valuable. You take the time to find out whether there’s gold, how much of it there, and you know this? And if it is there, what should I do to remove it from there? Well, just say “I believe”, and to keep only the planting of potatoes is not faith, it’s just words.
The same thing is happening in relation to faith in God.
Today the vast majority of people consider themselves believers. But do they really believe? As it is expressed in their lives? Or is this just words?
It is written in the Bible this way:
“If someone says he has faith but does not have the cases-can this faith save him? Faith, if not, is dead in itself. Someone may say: “do you have faith and I have works. Show me your faith without works, and I will show you my faith of my “. Do you believe that God is one-good doin ‘; demons believe and tremble. But wilt thou know, foolish man, that faith without works is dead? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead. ” (James 2:14 -26)
At the time I dedicate something to think about God, read the Bible and learn what God is, what he expects from me. After all, if a person really believes in something, his faith will be manifested in his life. You cannot believe in one thing, and do another. Then the person simply does not believe.
