Believing Is Trusting

Adrian Rogers

A Christian is not somebody who merely believes intellectually that Christ died for his sins. The devil believes that. A Christian is somebody who has invited Christ into his life.

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31). That word “believe” is a Greek word that literally means “trust.”

Now you can believe that an airplane can fly, but you must trust it in order to fly in it. You must get in it in order to know that it will carry you to your destination.

If you are not willing to make Jesus Lord of your life, He can’t be your Savior. When you trust Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sins and save you, He begins to take control of your life and make you the person He wants you to be.

But your life doesn’t have to be absolute perfection for you to go to heaven. The minute you trust Christ as your Savior, God begins to work on you.
