“Unto you therefore who believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner” 1 Peter 2:7

Some may have been going to church for long but can’t locate any virtue in their lives (they are as normal as they were before they met The Lord).

Our opening verse shows us the reason for that. It tells us that unto the one that believes in Jesus, He will become precious. This means that when a man believes in Jesus he would reveal Himself to him.

Many want to have a personal revelation of God before they can believe in his existence or salvation. But that is not the heart that will receive from the Lord.

“…for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:6. 

The AMP rendering tells;

“for whosoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that he is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek him [out]”. 

Notice you are the one to seek him out with your belief.

The word ‘believe’ connotes accepting a thing as true, especially with absolute certainty. It involves total reliance.

God’s final destination by his works in our lives is to bring us to glory. For this reason 2 Peter 1:3 tells

“according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and Godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:”. 

If God has called us to glory and virtue then how is it that many of God’s children don’t see or experience this glory in their lives?

The answer is often common and simple; unbelief.

You see without faith, it just doesn’t matter how long you’ve served in the house of the Lord, or how much you’ve prayed and fasted. The above scriptures tell us; you must necessarily believe that he is, and you must diligently and earnestly seek him.

I believe the Word unreservedly, I walk by Faith today and always.

Romans 12:4-6; 1 Corinthians 12:25-28
