Diligently Seek Him
There are two possible responses to any information we receive: we may either believe it or disbelieve it. When the Savior sent the apostles at Mark Sixteen to preach the Gospel, He said it was those that believed it and were baptized that would be saved, while the disbelievers would be lost. In the language of Scripture, faith and belief are the same word. It is the obedient faith that the Savior said would save a person, and which Paul said at the Fifth of Romans would justify as well. At Romans Ten, Paul said faith comes from hearing the Word of God, while the Eleventh of Hebrews warns that it is impossible to please God without such a faith. Those that come to God must not only believe that He is, but also that He rewards those that diligently seek Him.
