Today I will commit to Martha’s response to Jesus: to believe before she sees. (See John 11.) This contrasts with “see then believe.” (NB: Martha committed to belief before Christ raised Lazarus.)
And whoever continues to live and believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, and relies on) Me shall never [actually] die at all. Do you believe this? She said to Him, Yes, Lord, I have believed [I do believe]
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
Today I will “believe” my way to God’s altar.
