Gathering in Christ
For what do the Scriptures say? Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
God hitched Abraham’s wagon to the stars He had created by His word. In our personal lives, the great solution is always found in the words of our LORD when we have His Spirit… Whenever we indulge in hurry or in the dumps and refuse to pay attention to His words, we smash the connecting line and go off on our own…
Abraham goes out of himself and relies upon God. [What made him righteous was his living confidence in God.] Righteousness must never be made to mean less than a guiltless position in the presence of justice and right. The justification of every sinner is by faith and by faith alone. But it is our just walk that proves Him just in saving us. If we do not walk in the life of faith, we are a slander to God.
