Letting Him Know We Believe

Me at March on Washington
   This morning I heard a preacher quoting John 3:16 "For this is how God loved the world: He gave his unique Son so that everyone who believes in him might not be lost but have eternal life." It was the word "believes" that caught my attention. Searching it out I found this or similar phrases used 35 or 40 times or more. 

I began to ask the Lord how might someone let Jesus know he or she believed in Him. At least four ways popped into my head.

1. If I spend time in fellow shipping with Him. You don’t use up your valuable time talking back and forth with your imagination. That gets quickly weird.

2. If I spend my time worshiping Him when I have so much else to do.

3. If I spend my valuable time trying to learn as much about Him as possible from the Book and listening to people who know Him.

4. If I go around quoting Him.

(I am certain He also knows when I tell Him I do)
