All things considered, eventually a decision needs to be made concerning Jesus Christ. He either was who he said he was or he wasn’t. We must believe he was who he said he was before we can tap into the riches that God has for us.
Once we believe in Jesus, those riches are not automatic. We still need to be born again. God insists we believe in Him because if we don’t we will not act. It is when we act in faith that something real happens.
