Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner[stone],
in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
The importance of believing
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
3 things affected when we believe
1)What we think
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what [is] that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
2) What we say
"For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says
"Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive [them], and you will have [them].
3) What we do
"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
"and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
"But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
"and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."
A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; [But] it shall not come near you.
He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
