I Am Persuaded!
If someone says to us that they believe a certain thing will occur, we detect a hint of doubt in their words. But if someone says they are persuaded that a thing will occur, this seems more certain. Yet, in actuality both to believe as well as to be persuaded means the same thing in the Bible. We either believe something or we don't. This can be important or relatively unimportant according to the content of the belief.

Believing is also related to the trustworthiness of the one to be believed in. For example, a man can be honest yet mistaken, and mislead us unintentionally. Also a man can be a liar and deceiver and mislead us purposefully, yet we know that the Lord can do neither of these since He cannot lie. (Titus 1:2) So, when the Lord tells us something in the Scriptures, we can absolutely bank on it to be true.

One of the sad realities of the Christian Church is believers who are lazy or unmotivated to work for their Savior because of all He has done for them. Dr. Earl Radmacher, instructor for the BBN BI course number 51700, Sonship Versus Discipleship makes the statement that the message of the Gospel of the grace of God is to believe. He then goes on to add, the more we believe the more we will be able to do!  So, once we become persuaded of our salvation in Christ, we then are able to do unlimited good as believers through the Spirit who empowers us and the truth that we believe!  Dr. Radmacher reminds us of the highly-motivating truth that the Gospel is Good News and that believing it frees us to do the good works that God intends for us to do! (Eph.2:8-10)

We trust that many will be motivated to take this course, persuaded that they have eternal life in Christ and be freed to do the good works that the Lord has planted in their hearts!
