Ten Gospel Truths

What the Bible Teaches - Truth #9

  1. "We through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith" (Galatians 5:6).
  2. "By grace are ye saved through faith." It's "with the heart" that we believe (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:10).
  3. God's people in the end of time will be noted for having such faith (Revelation 14:12).
  4. Such faith is an experience that constantly grows and develops (Romans 1:16, 17).
  5. The constant prayer of those who have faith is, "Help Thou mine unbelief" (Mark 9:23, 24).
  6. Saving faith is so closely related to agape that it is a response to it (John 3:16; Ephesians 6:23; 1 Thessalonians 1:3; 5:8; 2 Thessalonians 1:3; Philemon 5).
  7. Agape is "shed abroad in the heart by the Holy Spirit," brought from heaven vertically; immediately it flows out horizontally to our fellow men. What flows back to God is faith (Romans 5:5; Colossians 1:4).
  8. Translation at the coming of Christ will be the final experience of mature faith (Hebrews 11:5; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17).
  9. How can we understand "righteousness by faith" unless we understand what "faith" is?
