It’s Just Faith

If you have no real and personal relationship with Jesus Christ, if you have never received Him as your Savior, you are in a dangerous and deadly condition. According to the Bible, when God considers your eternal soul, lifted up before Him, it is not “upright.” In other words, you are not right before God, and you may not stand before Him and live.

How can this situation be rectified? What can you do to escape from eternal death, and receive eternal life? All praise to God, He has made a way! This way is called by some “justification.” Justification is the way that God makes the unrighteous righteous before Him, through His Son, Jesus Christ.

But what is the means by which you can receive this gift from God? Must you work for it? Must you pay for it? Can you inherit it from your earthly parents? Will men grant it to you if you join an organization or perform some rite of initiation? By no means! The only way to be justified before God Almighty is through faith.

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Habakkuk 2:4

Do you want to live? I mean live eternally? If so, you must transfer your faith from whatever it is currently in, and place it entirely on the Lord Jesus Christ, believing that He paid the price for your sins on the Cross of Calvary, and that He died and rose again.

But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Romans 4:5
