Do You Believe?

It’s BIG QUESTIONS WEEK here on GUWG where all week long we’ve been looking at deep, thought-provoking ?s posed in the Bible.

One day, two blind men came to Jesus. They wanted to see. He asked them a simple question that cut right to the heart of the matter:

Their response?

Yes, Lord, we do.

Stop Doubting and Believe

GUWG-Faith-DoubtWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

Yesterday, we discussed Jesus’ first appearance to his disciples after his resurrection.

Thomas wasn’t there when Jesus appeared. The other disciples kept telling him, “We have seen the Lord!” His response? “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I won’t believe.”

A week later he got his chance:

Cross Over

GUWG-Jesus-CrossWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

Jesus continues the discussion started yesterday about who he is and why he came:

“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.”

We’re counting down the top ten Bible verses of all time, based on an exhaustive study conducted by research scientists with very large brains (and apparently a lot of time on their hands) who determined how often each verse appears in print.

Drum roll, please. Here’s the absolute #1 most popular Bible verse in the history of the world. You learned it in Sunday School. You’ve seen it on banners at sporting events. Maybe you’ve even got it tattooed on your biceps.

But don’t let familiarity rob it of its power and truth. Pray through every single precious word right now with all your heart.

For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him
shall not perish
but have eternal life.
(John 3:16)
