Navigating Life’s Highway: Defined By Our Driving
What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, has found? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? “ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS CREDITED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.” Romans 4:1-3
We, because of sin, find ourselves living by works to work out how we live. It’s really manipulation and manipulation is all the devil left Adam with following his disbelief and disobedience. Living by works, rather than faith, is living by manipulation so that we can manipulate how we live. God is not a man that He should live (Numbers 23:19). God doesn’t work in manipulation and neither do His people. Faith believes it doesn’t deceive. Faith has fruit but it doesn’t work to produce it.
