Word of the Day... February 16, 2013



19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. James 2:19

Did you know that the devil and his demons believe in the existence of God?  They also believe that the Bible is the very Word of God.  Satan and his demons also are very aware that Jesus is coming back again.

James used this verse to illustrate to us that just believing is not enough.  After all don’t the demons believe and tremble?  To tremble means that they are terrified.  They tremble because they are well aware of the power of the Lord. However, they do not trust in Him or cling to Him.

James teaches us in this verse that we can know about God but not necessarily believe, in the Biblical sense, in God. True belief in Jesus Christ is the quality of faith that will bring you to the Lord and commit your life to Him and rest completely in Him.  To trust in Him completely, for it is when we do this that there will be a radical change in our life and how we live it.  Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.  And no man or woman or child can come to the Father except through Jesus!!!

I hope that you all have a Simply Heavenly Saturday!!!  God bless you!!!
