Hello. Welcome to the Secret to Success in Life. So, what is The Foundation of a Christian’s belief center? You may have already guessed the answer to this question. If you have even believed only a kernel of truth that you have heard or seen from God’s Holy Word… It’s Jesus Christ. (read on…)
BUT…………… there is more to it than that. Try your best to believe what I am telling you here if you can. Jesus Christ (the greatest man that ever walked this earth) is recorded as saying something in the gospel of John about the reason why God sent him.
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.” KJV
Well, what does the Word say in this verse? ALOT I must say. Let’s just focus on what the “Foundation of a Christian’s Belief Center” is – which is Jesus Christ. He was sent to this earth by God so that YOU might not only have LIFE in all it’s fullness, but so that YOU might have it MORE ABUNDANTLY also.
Did you know that your belief center is in your mind. Specifically, it is the center of your mind and thoughts. It is where you believe from. That’s right… It is your HEART.
Now look at this verse:
Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” KJV
There it IS (in black and white, I might add). Those two verses tell a believer how to get saved (also called in the Bible being born again). When you do these two things: 1) confess with your mouth that Jesus is now your Lord (or master, which means the same thing) AND 2) believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, then you are SAVED or born again. (note that it does not say that Jesus raised himself from the dead but rather that God raised him (Jesus) from the dead).
That is all there is to it. Now you have THE foundation for your belief center IN you and you are on His way in your life to the more abundant life that God has promised you. By the way, God is in the habit of keeping His promises. It’s all as simple as that, so don’t complicate it. OK?
Now, once a person is saved or born again, they are just at the start of a commitment to God in their lives. God has much more available to each of His children than just stepping into eternal life. We each have the potential of becoming Super-Conquerors (Gk- hypernikaō in Romans 8:27) while we are living our lives here on earth now.
Be sure to read some of my other articles while you are here that will bring you to an understanding of the more abundant life available to each believer now in our current lives on earth. I continue to add more articles regarding these truths on a regular basis. So please bookmark this webpage and keep coming back.
Thanks for this moment of time in your life that you have given to me.
God Bless You,
