Jesus asked, “But who do you say that I am?” (Luke 9:20). Flip back the flaps of your soul, and you’ll see a series of beliefs that serve like poles to stabilize the tent of your life and faith. Your belief system is your answer to fundamental questions about life. Is anyone in control of the universe? Does life have a purpose? Is this life all there is?
Your belief system has nothing to do with your skin color, your appearance, your talents, or your age. It is the set of convictions—all of them unseen—upon which your life depends. If your belief system is strong, you will stand. If it is weak, the storm will prevail.
Belief always precedes behavior. To change the way a person responds to life, change what a person believes about life. So…who do you believe Jesus is?
