“They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Acts 16:31 (NIV)
Believing in Jesus as your personal Savior is not an intellectual acknowledgement, but trusting in Him to live a changed life. The gospel changes the one who believes and it influences those close to that one. The gospel changes hearts, minds, and attitudes and when others see that change in us we become a witness for God’s glory.
When a person finds Christ and follows Him by believing in Him and what the word of God says, the gospel change in their lives becomes evident to all. When we are saved we shine a light that dispels the darkness around us.
Let’s pray today that we may be so filled with the gospel in our lives that influences others.
