If you are reading this Bible or Not post, then at this very moment, wherever you are, whether conciously or unconciously, you have made the decision that this is the most important thing for you to be doing, at this moment in time. Your action of reading, is born out of the belief that what I’m writing is worthwhile enough to read (oh, I really hope so). Likewise, my action of writing, is born out of the belief that it will in some way benefit someone, directly or indirectly.
EVERYTHING we do is based upon the FACT that our actions are based upon what we believe to be true -action is born of belief. It is no different in our faith, and this point is made crystal clear by the Bible in the Book of James – faith without works is dead
Yesterday I asked our readers to think about the “all who call on God in true faith” quote, and see if it was in the Bible or Not. Here is the full quote, and while it sounds very Biblical, it is a quote from Martin Luther and not in the Bible.
Jesus and the Scriptures do teach us that those who approach God in true faith, with sincere petition from the heart, will be heard by God.
Today’s quote is on “true faith” and prayer. Does this come from the Bible or Not?
“All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired.”
This quote does sound Biblical, maybe even a Bible verse, but is it? Before looking it up, test your Bible knowledge and see if you can pinpoint whether it’s Bible or not.
