  • Live By Faith

    Contributed by Scott Spencer on Jan 15, 2012

    The Bible, however, teaches that faith is the key to everything for the Christian. By faith we come to Christ. By faith we live our Christian lives successfully. Without faith it is impossible to please God. In other words, faith is central for Christian

    Romans 1:17 January 15, 2012 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ''The righteous will live by faith."
