Isaiah 45:22

“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”

What to believe?  Is it really true that you will be okay and saved as long as you believe something?

Does it really matter what you believe or if you believe anything at all?  Can you really know what to believe or who to trust to lead you in the truth?

In a world and a society that increasingly offers a smorgasbord of religions, philosophies and world views, with wildly differing views of who God is, what God is, even if there is a God, what will you believe?

In order to figure out what you believe, you also need to figure out who to believe.  Who will you listen and put your faith in?  Family, Hollywood movie stars, TV personalities, charismatic preachers, ancient philosophers, or something else?

Some teach there is but one supreme being.  Others teach that deity is everywhere and in everything.  Still others teach that even if there is a supreme being, he certainly is not knowable by common man.  

No Ambiguity.

In contrast with the cacophony of chaos that engulfs our world today, that says one thing one moment and then changes the next, the Words of the Bible are strikingly simple.  The Bible makes the clear declaration:  

“...before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.  I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no Savior.”  Isaiah 43:10b-11

God calls for everyone in all the earth to turn to Him to be saved.  God knows that there is and will be the confusion of many religious truth claims.  Therefore He speaks with perfect clarity.  He declares there is argument to be made, and there is no competition to be had.  

“...There is no God else beside me...” Isaiah 45:21

Furthermore, He is not hiding from us.  He sent Jesus to the be light of the world and die for the sins of all mankind.  He beckons us to come to Him through the price that was paid by Jesus on the cross.  He invites us to inherit eternal life just as Jesus rose from the dead and lives forever.  He gave us His Holy Word the Bible so that we can know not only the good news of salvation by faith in Christ provided by the grace fo God.

What you believe is important? 

Your life and externality of your soul depend on it.  It’s a big choice to be made.  Which is why we are so blessed that there is a big God to answer it.  

God has recorded what took place in the beginning and what He did through sending His son to the earth for our salvation.  The only one that was there through it all was God.  No one else.  

No Doubts

Salvation is not of works lest anyone should brag or think themselves worthy.  There is nothing you can do to earn salvation from the one true God.  He has already done all that is required.  You don’t have to doubt whether or not you have gained salvation

All you have to do is accept what He has done by faith.  Repent of your inability to know Him or get to where He is on your own because you are a flawed fallen human, just as we all are, and turn to God by believing in what he has done and said as being true and the only way to get to Heaven.  

There is Only one God, and there is only one way to God...through Faith in Jesus Christ.  

Who will you believe?
