Faith and Patience in Prayer: Leadings of the Spirit

Hebrews 11:1 lets us know that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. If something is visible and can be easily accessed, faith is simply not involved. The Greek word for faith here is “pistis” and it simply means persuasion or moral conviction. When a person is persuaded, there is hardly ever anything that can change their mind.

Is God Truly Good? | The Merciful Judge

Have you ever been to a courtroom where a person is found guilty and yet, instead of the judge sentencing them to a number of years in prison or giving them any sort of punishment, this person is told to do a certain thing that would prevent the person from serving any sort of punishment. Weird right? It doesn’t happen because you can only be set free when you’re not found guilty.

Understanding Romans_ Chapter Four Commentary

A Guide to Romans Bible Study and Romans Commentary || Chapter 4

Chapter 3 ends on the note saying that it is the law of faith that enables us to fulfill the law and Chapter 4 encompasses GRACE. So far, Paul has pointed out the fact that salvation is by faith and faith alone, he talks about the ungodly nature of men who have chosen to have reprobate minds and how God has given them up to their reprobate minds. In Chapter 3, we see Paul talk of 2 categories of people; the Jews and the Gentiles. The Jews were the people whom God had given the laws and told His promise, for this they felt like a special kind of people, judging others and being hypocritical. The second set of people, the Gentiles, were the ones who did not know or serve God and were regarded as outsiders and not God’s people. But Paul tells us that all the people, Jew or non-Jew had all fallen short of the glory of God, none was good and all needed saving. And this salvation could only come through faith and not works. In Chapter 4, he uses 2 examples to support his statement, Abraham and David.

Bible Study and Commentary || ROMANS 1

The book of Romans is the longest and the clearest exposition by the Apostle Paul on the Gospel. This book contains the doctrinal foundation for the Christian faith, and it is for this reason that it was arranged first in order among the New Testament epistles. The truths presented here must be understood before proceeding to other doctrinal matters. In this letter, Paul dealt with a larger number of doctrinal issues than in any other of his epistles. His treatment of the doctrine of salvation by grace through faith was so masterfully done that its divine inspiration cannot be questioned.
