Faith in Jesus is the most important choice a person makes. Faith is more than just believing in something. Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing. So faith in Jesus is believing in Jesus but that includes having confidence in Jesus and trusting Jesus.
That is where the Christian life begins. 2 Peter 1 says that we are given all things that pertain to life and godliness. The very first thing is faith. That very thing that we exercise, faith, comes from God. When we turn to Him and place our confidence and trust in our Almighty Creator, we are making the best choice a person can make in this lifetime.
So faith is great, faith is important…..BUT we need MORE than faith.
