The Importance of Living by FAITH
•Four times God said in the Bible “The JUST shall live by FAITH”
1. Habakkuk 2:4
2. Romans 1:17
3. Galatians 3:11
4. Hebrews 10:38
•The word JUST in scripture means justified ( just as if we have never sinned). It also means RIGHTEOUS.
•It is impossible to please God without faith, Hebrews 11:6.
•It doesn’t take any FAITH to live unholy and unrighteous, but it takes FAITH in Christ Jesus to live HOLY and RIGHTEOUS. Why?
Galatians 2:16 says,
Knowing that a man is not justified (or made righteous) by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ…
•You are righteous, justified, sanctified and holy because you live by the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His redemptive work for us.
Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
