About What’s In A Name? Series
What's in a name? Names identify, explain, and serve to distinguish one from another. What do God's names reveal to us about Him, coming from Him?
Romans 4:9b ESV
For we say that faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness.
Abraham didn’t work for or work up his faith. No, the flesh of his confidence worked against his faith. Abraham was reduced to faith.
Human faith is not an achievement – it is a failure.
Faith must be a gift the poor cannot buy, received freely from the Only One who holds all power. Faith does not rest on the promise as such. Belief is confidence that the One Who promises is the One Who can deliver. And will!
