🙌Blessings of Faith in God
[DAY – 244] Romans – Chapter 4
👉 Bible-based Faith in God will always make a difference in our lives.
👉 Some of the greatest things faith can do are:
1️⃣ Faith gives us the goodness of God.
📍Faith literally puts the goodness of God into our spiritual accounts.
📍We say that God is good, and He surely is. (Psalm 107:8-9)
📍We could never measure up to the glory or goodness of God because all have sinned and fallen short of God’s Glory.
📍In Ephesians 2:8, the Bible tells us that we can only be saved by God’s grace through faith, and that is the summary of what Paul said here in Romans 4.
📍*Abraham believed God.
📍 And we also have to believe on Him who justifies the ungodly.
📍 *All have sinned, so all need a Savior.
📍Jesus will be our Savior, if we believe in Him.
📍 GOD COVERS OUR SINS.
📍 GOD ALSO PUTS HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS INTO OUR ACCOUNT.
2️⃣ Faith gives amazing answers to our prayers.
📌 Faith gives amazing answers to our prayers, and *here God gives us the example of Abraham. *
📌 Today we can have the same kind of faith that Abraham had, because all things are still possible with God, and because God will always be true to His Word.
📌 Abraham and Sarah were beyond human hope of having the promised baby. But they were never beyond heavenly hope! And Abraham believed this truth. (vs. 17)
📌 FAITH TAKES OUR FOCUS OFF OUR SITUATION AND PUTS IT ON OUR SAVIOR.
📌 FAITH ALSO PUTS OUR FOCUS ON THE SCRIPTURE.
3️⃣ Faith gives us a home in heaven.
🔖 Verse 17 reminds us that we have an eternal home in Heaven, because it tells us, “God gives life to the dead.”
🔖 It was not written for Abraham’s sake alone, that God’s righteousness was imputed to him.)
🔖 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on Him that raised up Jesus, our Lord from the dead.
🔖 * Jesus was raised again, because He never deserved to die in the first place.
🔖 *And He was raised again for our justification.
🔖 *Therefore, we who believe in JESUS, will live together with HIM forever in Heaven!
🔖 This can only happen through FAITH.
