Certain Evidence

Looking for EvidenceEvidence, by definition, is: That which illuminates and enables the mind to see truth

…Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that.”—Galatians 2:20 (Message)

When we make Christ our life and central focus, things turn from the external to the internal. No more of our looking out to Him as being somewhere we have to reach to, but rather, we have Him actually living inside of us—with all of His power, grace and faith—enabling us to rise above the circumstances of life.

Our faith in Christ should carry certain evidence:

1. Faith’s Conviction – this is where we walk in the certainty of the realization of God in our lives; as well as daily acknowledging of the revelation of His truth in the Word and in our lives. “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;”—Romans 4:20

2. Faith’s Surrender – this is where we simply say “not our will, but Yours Lord.” We see this example given by Jesus in the Garden, when He made the decision to surrender. This decision is a decision to receive His way as our own; “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”—John 1:12

3. Faith’s Conduct – this is where we exhibit the evidence of the decision to surrender. In other words, we begin to live by the faith that Jesus carries on the inside of us. It does not come from the external it comes as a part of the package when we make the decision to allow the Lord to live in us and through us; for “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”—2 Corinthians 5:17

Yes, my friend, there should be certain evidence to our faith and walk with Christ. This is not meant to be hidden, but rather clear and evident for the world to see. For the scriptures teach: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16).

    An excellent “lesson” for all Christians! We are the “salt and light” according to the way we conduct our lives before Him and the people around us.
