Reason to Believe


Dear Holy Weekers,

I’ve tried to argue people into believing in Jesus. I have found it a frustrating experience. If I had the wits to argue someone into belief in the risen Jesus, someone smarter than I could just as easily argue them out of belief.

I believe that deep, life-changing Christian belief is based not upon arguments and reasons but upon encounters with the risen Jesus . We believe simply because He comes to us and gives us that which we cannot give ourselves—a reason to believe, a way to go on, a path out of suffering and doubt toward faith, someone to be loved by, something to belong to, and purpose in service.


May the promises of John, Chapters 17-21 , bless you this week and forever.


Still in one peace,
Pastor David J. Jensen
