“But glory, honour, and peace to every man that worketh good…”
“But the doers of the law shall be justified…”
Faith and Grace
“Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith…”
“Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace…”
“And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own now dead…”
*Paul chose Abraham as a model of faith because he had so much of it! He believed in what he knew, and he did not doubt even considering the circumstances. He could not see how he would be the father of many nations, but he knew it would happen regardless of the situation in which he was in.
*Adam’s fall affected each of us, because Adam died that we would become. He suffered death by sin and that made him know good from evil and that is how we now live our lives with that knowledge.
* We understand Grace, faith, and good works to be the things that will bring us Salvation through Christ. After we do all we can it is Grace that saves us. Grace means a divine means of help, and we receive that help through our Savior by His Infinite Atonement. Without faith and good works we are not trying to be doers of the word, and without it are unbelieving.
