Almost everyone who sees this title will answer that yes they believe in Jesus. It is something many people are convinced is true, and it is not. They think once you acknowledge believing in Jesus, it surely means that you will be saved. You will not have to answer for your sins, and when you die you will go to heaven instead of hell. Of course you believe.

Or do you?

Read these words of Jesus.

But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it (Matthew 7:14).

Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven (Matthew 7:21).

Do you really believe in Jesus?

To really believe in Jesus is not an easy life. It is a life that will not fit well with the majority of the people in our world. To believe in Jesus is to live life the way Jesus lived. It is to seek his will, to treat people the way he wants you to, to live as God asks you to. It is to follow Jesus.

Real belief is life changing.
Many people will say they believe in Jesus yet never give him a thought. They will claim belief while living any way they desire. And all the while they are fooling themselves into thinking this is a belief that will save them.

Not according to what Jesus said.

It is an easy thing to affirm belief in Jesus. It is a different matter entirely to follow him — to really believe in him. Jesus was sent by a loving God to die for your sins so you could live forever. Do not fool yourself into thinking it is enough to agree this is true. Believing in Jesus is more than knowing about Jesus; real belief is to follow Jesus. And real belief will save you. Let’s visit about it. Write me at Or visit our website at
