John 3:16. For this is the way God loved the world:He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

This is the best promise in the Bible but often misunderstood. There is one very little word on which this promise hinges. That word is “in.” Many people believe Jesus is the Son of God. The devil even knows Jesus is the Son of God. We are not told we are just believe Jesus is God’s Son. We are to believe IN Jesus. Believing someone is who they say they are and believing IN someone are not the same. We can believe someone is who the say they are without trusting them or having faith in them. When we believe IN Jesus we say we trust Him with our lives. We are willing to follow Him wherever He might lead us. We have no doubt that all He says is true. Our question is do we really believe IN Jesus or do we just believe He is Who He said He is?
