WE LIVE BY FAITH

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Rom 1:17

For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, c just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."

NIV

The righteousness we now walk in works by faith. Our righteousness towards God is by faith from start to finish. This means that as your salvation was by faith in Christ Jesus, your sanctification, baptism in the Holy Spirit, living a victorious Christian life and making it to be raptured will also be by faith in Christ Jesus. None of these can be accomplished by adhering to any laws; trusting that keeping those laws will do it for you.

Many people are saved by grace but intend to be sanctified by laws. They do not know that grace is received by faith and it is this grace that empowers us to live holy and acceptable lives before God. Faith in God means you have come to the end of yourself; your soul now accepts that you cannot do it by your own strength.

Go into today knowing that your faith in Christ Jesus is to be as strong today as it was when you first believed. Everything you do in His kingdom is by faith. We constantly look up to Him alone for victory in this world.

Prayer: thank you heavenly father for your great love and grace towards me. I pray dear lord that I will only believe and not add anything else to my believing. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
