Loving and Believing

 

“Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.”  John 14:23 NLT

 

In the midst of the darkness, I could hear one of the little campers calling out my name.  As I went from bunk to bunk to see who was calling me, I caught vision of the little one, wide eyed, with head lifted from her pillow in wonder.  I bent low and whispered, “Are you OK?” 

“No, I have a question.”

“Oh Honey, it’s late, but what is your question?”  Our faces almost touching so we did not wake the other little girls.  

“Well, I want to know…I think I believe, I want to believe, but how do I know I believe?” 

As I looked into her little face, lit by the flashlight, I thought “Wow! I love how God does His wooing in the night.”

 

“What a great question!” I responded, “The Bible says, ‘If you believe in the Lord Jesus, you will be saved.’ Have you done that?”

“Yes” she replied with enthusiasm.

“Then you believe.”

“But how do I know, know, know I believe?” she queried.

Led by the Holy Spirit, I said, “Do you love Him with your whole heart?”

Joyously, she responded, “OH YES!”

 

“Then, you believe!”

 

The smile on her face and the hug that followed, exuded great joy. We both went to bed with very happy hearts. Love and belief go hand-in-hand!  We believe the One who holds our hearts.
