“Everything else is garbage.”

Posted: July 3, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

“Every good gift the Father gives—every richness from Christ, every blessing from the Spirit—flows from the gospel and is received through faith.

  • We receive righteousness through faith (Rom. 3:22).
  • We are justified through faith (Rom. 3:30; Gal. 2:16).
  • We stand fast through faith (Rom. 11:20).
  • We are sons of God through faith (Gal. 3:26).
  • We are indwelled by Christ through faith (Eph. 3:17).
  • We are raised with Christ through faith (Col. 2:12).
  • We inherit the promises through faith (Heb. 6:12).
  • We conquer kingdoms, enforce justice, and stop the mouths of lions through faith (Heb. 11:33).
  • We are guarded through faith (1 Pet. 1:5).

We live through faith, and we die through faith. Everything else is garbage.”
