My guess is that most of us know what we believe. Perhaps fewer of us would be able to succinctly describe what they believe. And fewer still could explain why they hold those beliefs. I’m not sure why those things are true, but in my experience they are.
That’s probably not a very big deal when it comes to superficial beliefs, such as who your favorite team is or even who you voted for in the last election. Where it is a big deal is when it comes to what we believe about God and our relationship with Him.
Make no mistake, people who do not know Jesus notice something different about those of us who do. And when they go through difficult times they may seek us out to find out what it is in us that sets us apart. They may not realize why, but something about God’s presence in us attracts them. It would be nice to be able have an answer for them.
That’s where the importance of knowing, reading, studying and meditating on God’s word comes in. Psalms 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, spends a lot of time talking about the importance of God’s word in our lives and how we can depend on it when we need answers ourselves or to provide answers to others.
