Compass due north

Interlinked words

‘Believing’ the facts, begins with acceptance of  the claims of  Jesus that He is the Lord from heaven and He is now risen from the dead.

‘Faith’ in the person, is acknowledging His trustworthiness and ability to save.

‘Trust’, is the yielding of the heart and soul, so as to depend on Him for everything  for all eternity.

‘Follow’ is the commitment to Him, His word, His leading, His future.

Note in Bible usage, all of these are frequently implied in the use of just one of them.

For example:

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved” Acts 16.31


(PS these are not dictionary definitions. I trust that they rather are the reality in your heart)
