The all important first step of faith
A journey begins with a single step and without that first step the journey will not take place; likewise, a lifetime of walking with God requires that all important first step of faith to be taken.
Multitudes upon multitudes do stand on the threshold of the door of salvation in a deep valley of indecision unwilling to make that all important first step of faith.
Faith is the willingness to utterly abandon our own ways in favor of God's ways.
Jesus said, whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but he who loses his life for my sake shall save it.
By dying to ourselves, we become alive in Christ and if we live in
Christ (believe) we shall obtain everlasting life.
