As Christians, when we say "I believe", I wonder how often we give serious thought to what we are really saying. Often, the first thought that comes to mind is John 3:16 "....for whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." But saying "I believe" carries with it much more far-reaching implications than just redemption and heaven. If you believe in Jesus, you must also believe in His teachings and commandments. You see, Christianity is a package deal, you can't just take part of it, you must take it all. The committment is both sobering and challenging. As spring approaches and we experience new life around us, let's take a moment to put new life in our Christian committment.
