As I was writing this today, the cheesy 80's theme song came to mind from "Great American Hero".
Pretty fitting though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4JCehDOy54
Do you believe in God/Father/Creator? Do you believe in Jesus/Son/Savior? Do you believe in Holy Spirit/Power? Do you not believe at all? Are you indifferent?
Do you believe this? Do you believe there is still power in us/for us/through us same over 2000 years ago?
We all have struggles, issues personally and certainly as well as a collective world.
v46-47 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
Do you believe it... that God cares about our personal struggles and what is going on in our world?
Do you believe He has the power to change things in our lives that need changing?
One thing is certain, there is no power in non-belief:
v40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn—and I would heal them
Even people in Jesus' presence chose not to believe after seeing him perform miracles (feeding thousands from one lunch, healing the blind & paralized, reviving a dead man). They heard God's voice and chose to dismiss it (v29). Some believed, but kept it to themselves out of fear (v42).
We can not believe at all (v48)
We can be indifferent/somewhat believe and keep it undercover
We can believe (ask, seek and see His power) and Glorify His name when He comes through
