LIVING A SPIRITUAL LIFE IS BY FAITH!
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17).
Anyone who wants to live a spiritual life should live his life by faith in God. It is only through faith a Christian is justified in life. There is absolutely no one that will be justified by his works of righteousness except by faith in life. That is why salvation is by faith and not by works or merits in life. Faith is purely a gift of righteousness obtained by grace in life. The Bible says in the opening text that for in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that living a spiritual life is by faith in God. Hence whoever learns to live his spiritual life by faith in God, he absolutely receives grace and favor from God in life forever.
The Scriptures made it clear to us vividly that without faith no one can please God in life. In a nutshell, it simply means that without faith no one can be justified before God in life. That is why the Bible says in Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for He who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Therefore, it takes absolute faith for one to please God and be justified as a Christian in life. Faith is highly necessary for the justification of a Christian in life. A life that is lived devoid of faith in God is absolutely a life that is lived in bondage and total darkness in life forever.
The life of faith is a life of the Spirit of God. Without being filled with the Holy Spirit, one can never live his life by faith in God. Without faith also, one can never be justified before God in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:7, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” In fact, it takes absolute faith in God for a Christian to be successful in his spiritual pilgrimage in life. Whenever a Christian walks by sight, he is walking according to the flesh and he can never be justified before God in life. But when he walks by faith, he is walking in the Spirit and that is the only way he can be justified before God in life. A life that is lived without faith in God is absolutely a life that is lived which can never be able to please the Lord in life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should endeavor to live his life in absolute faith in God by walking in the Spirit in order to be justified and be able to please the Lord in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).
