To decide, means to begin to live and to believe. To believe means to decide. The question to be posed is: Are you a believer?
Pilgrims pray in the dwindling daylight at the base of the Cross on Mt. Krizevac in Medjugorje. The Cross was built on the mountain as a sign of faith by the village of Medjugorje in 1933. The village of Medjugorje was made of true believers, whose lives resulted in physical works such as the Cross.
Does our faith result in action? Can one be a believer and still not be decided for God? A Friend of Medjugorje warns:
“…Do not wait another day, not even a moment, to change. Changing your ways, your life, is a decision for God. The time of decision is coming to an end. The decision is made by actions in your life. Some hearts deceive themselves by not deciding against God, but at the same time, not deciding for Him. Don’t be deceived! This is a decision rendered! If you haven’t decided for God in every area of your life, then you are deciding against Him…”1
Our Lady confirms this in the December 25, 2017 message:
In order to believe, whether one claims to be a Christian or a follower of Our Lady, one has to surrender their life into God’s hands. Not to surrender, would imply that one is a non-believer. Do not wait another day. Begin to live and to believe. In little things, change, surrender your life, your past, present and future into the hands of God, and thus become a believer.
