How Does your Belief Look? Does It Look Like Obedience?

I awoke to my phone presenting the verse of the day this morning which is John 3:36 “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” I’m sure I’ve read this verse before, probably many times but it struck me today. Often times we focus on the “believe in Christ” part of salvation to the exclusion of discussing the “obedience to Christ” part. This verse says that those who “believe” will have eternal life, but it doesn’t stop there. It says whoever does not obey Christ will not see life but God’s wrath. WOW! So you’re saying there is more required of me than just believing in Jesus to be saved? Yep! That’s exactly what scripture says! Obedience is the evidence of belief. If you’re not obeying you don’t really believe enough for it to make a difference in your life. Strong stuff! How does your belief look? Does it look like obedience?
