To Believe in God Means…

Martyn Lloyd-Jones

To believe in God means that we must believe implicitly in the promises of God to those who do thus follow him and give themselves to him. I imagine that this was the thing that our Lord was concerned to impress upon the minds of those troubled disciples. “Let not your heart be troubled . . . believe in God.” Why? Well, think of the promises that God has made to those who do believe in him. Read the Psalms, read the prophets, read God’s gracious promises throughout the Bible. Our Lord had already reminded these disciples of some of them. He said to them, “Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28). “Do not be afraid of men,” he said, “there is a limit to what they can do to you. But fear God.”
