From Galatians 3: “Down as Abraham believes God, and it is reckoned into righteousness to him, be knowing, consequently, that the ones out of belief, these are sons of Abraham. The writing, yet, perceiving before that God is justifying the nations out of belief, brings a good message before to Abraham that, “All the nations shall be blessed in you.” So, the ones out of belief, are being blessed with the believing Abraham. For as many as are out of works of law, are under a curse. For it has been written that, “Accursed is every one who is not remaining in all the things having been written in the scrollet of the law, doing them.” Yet it is evident that no one is being justified in law beside God, it being that, “The just one shall be living, out of belief.” Yet the law is not out of belief, but, “the one doing them, shall be living in them.” Christ buys us out of the curse of the law, becoming a curse over us, it having been written, “Accursed is every one being hung on wood,” that the blessing of Abraham may be coming in Christ Jesus, that we may be getting the promise of the spirit, through the belief.”
From 2 Corinthians 3: “We are having such confidence through Christ toward God, not that we are enough from ourselves, to reckon anything as out of ourselves, but our being enough is out of God, who also makes us servants of a new covenant, it being not of writing, but of spirit. For the writing is killing, yet the spirit is vivifying.”
God is doing humanly impossible things in the ones believing him, pouring more and more and more of his spirit into us, day after day after day, moment by moment by moment, not because of anything out of us. It’s all out of him, including the belief. It’s his belief. He gives it to us. The belief is actually him, coming into us, giving us more of him. He’s good, very good, good beyond comparison, good beyond belief, good beyond imagination!
What can we say, Father, but thank you, thank you, thank you, and thank you some more!
