And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.”
Acts 5:32 NRSV
It makes a difference. Coming to believe in Jesus brings about a transformation; it’s not head knowledge but a new heart. The promise is that hearts of stone become hearts of flesh. And from this encounter a life is built, a life of hope.
The divine is named in this reading as the person of God, Holy Spirit. Other readings imply an agency of God; an action producing a certain outcome, power to obey.
The consequence is that what is received by the believer is the reassurance of Jesus resurrection, their lives built on receiving the witness of the spirit to the truth.
Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.”

Jesus adds a post resurrection blessing for his followers, the power to believe, a foundation for faith.
