“Don’t just think about it, do it, do it, do it.” That was the line used in the television promotion encouraging healthy living. According to a survey, eighty four percent of Canadians believe that texting while driving should be a criminal offense. And yet, fatal collisions in Canada involving drivers distracted by texting have risen seventeen percent in recent years. Giving mental assent to something doesn’t necessarily cause a change of behaviour. In the book of Romans, we read, “If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” The reality is that many people give mental assent to the existence of God, but there is no change in their lives. They have failed to exercise saving faith, the importance of believing with their hearts that Jesus can and will make them His children. Knowing the truth is not enough. We must act on it.
