Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
After a powerful evangelical crusade, thousands prayed the sinner’s prayer. Joel left the crusade ground excited because he had just accepted Jesus Christ. “My life has changed, God has changed me” he exclaimed as he ran home.
But two months after this wonderful experience, Joel had returned to his old life of sin.
Joel’s father who was overjoyed by his son’s change of life was now left confused and with many questions.
James 2:19 and Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) says “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble”. “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”.
It is by believing (faith) that you come to God, and it is by faith that you remain with God. But faith is not believing God alone, even devils believe and tremble. Faith is believing and seeking Him diligently: that is true living faith. It is in your seeking God diligently that you will find peace and power with Him as a reward.
Go into today, making up your mind to add a diligent search for God (His word and truth) to your belief in Him, and watch how He will flood your life with His peace and amazing results. In 2 Peter, the first thing needed to be added to your faith is diligence. 2 Peter 1:5 (NASV): ‘Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge’.
