Jesus Said, “Only Believe”
The Lord God Almighty has revealed Himself as . . . the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The greatest privilege for mankind is knowing Him.
How does a person know Him?
Only believe. Just believe in Him. Amen.
Someone may ask, what is God like?
He is the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe.
Jesus said, “Only believe” (Mark 5:36, Luke 8:50).
It’s so simple . . . we must become like a child.
Jesus’ yoke is easy. His burden is light.
Jesus’ words are eternal (Matthew 24:35).
His words are spirit, and they are life (John 6:63).
His words are truth (John 17:17).
The words “only believe” are eternal, spirit, life and truth . . .
They reveal how a person can . . . know God . . . know His Son Jesus Christ . . . find eternal life . . . live forever . . . experience the riches of the glory of the mystery of . . . knowing the Lord God Almighty . . . and . . . infinitely, eternally more.
It is simple.
The answer is Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit.
He is everything a person wants and needs.
He is everything a person dreams of.
How does someone get Jesus? By faith, Jesus’ second most frequent topic in the gospels.
Faith is simple. It could also be translated reliance, or trust.
It is simply relying on God.
Receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. He wants to give you eternal life. He wants you to spend eternity with Him in heaven, a place so wonderful, it is beyond humans words.
Jesus Raised a Young Girl from the Dead
Jesus said, “Do not be afraid; only believe” (Mark 5:36).
“And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.” So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him . . .
While He [Jesus] was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”
And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James. Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly. When He came in, He said to them, “Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping.”
And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement. But He commanded them strictly that no one should know it, and said that something should be given her to eat” (Mark 5:22-24,35-43).
