Good Theology

August 23, 2010

Jonathan David and Melissa Helser had a great line in a song they were singing at Worshipfest this past weekend.  Simple, but at the core of the idea of faith.

If you want it

You already got it

You just have to believe it

Now some of you may raise your eyebrows at that one, but hear me on this.  God is the initiator.  God loved first.  Our sin was paid for at the cross 2000 years ago.  So the issue then is simply receiving it by faith and walking in it.  We are told in Romans 10, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”.  There has to be a revelation and a desire by His grace on our end to confess and a belief in our heart that leads us to walk in resurrection life.  This is a simple thing, not not necessarily easy to walk out, but a simple thing.  Do you want more depth in your relationship with Jesus?  Then believe that you can have it.  If you truly believe, then you will be moved to take the steps to get there.  Remember, Jesus has already conquered, the price has been paid. He does and completes the work in us, we just have to desire it and have the belief that leads us to obedience.

  1. Yes! This is excellent theology because “For all the promises of God find their Yes in him [Jesus].” And how about this: ” Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will given him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!” (Matthew 7:7-11)
