What Does it Really Mean to Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ?

100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #18 | with Daniel Whyte III

Acts 16:31: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”

How does one believe on Jesus? How can we know when we have believed on Him? To many, “believing” was easy–but to countless thousands the words “believe” and “faith” are mysteries hard to understand.

They say, “I have always believed in Jesus. I have always believed the Bible; yet I do not know whether or not I am saved.” That little word ‘faith” stops them–yet it is faith that makes salvation so simple and
so easy that man has a hard time accepting it.

Paul said in II Corinthians 4:3,4, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them”.

The devil has blinded the spiritual eyes of mankind to the simplicity of salvation, and put it into the human that man must DO something in order to be saved. “Faith” is the stumbling stone. Some interpret
faith to mean praying, working, feeling–and countless other things that have to do with man’s efforts and emotions.

It is not God’s will that we live in uncertainty. It is His will that we know and understand what “believing” means. Therefore I want to tell you, as simply as I know, what it means to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
