Nibble of Bread : Salvation by Faith

October 10, 2012

Galatians 3:26

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

So we have covered salvation by mouth, salvation by baptism, now it’s faith. The previous two verses both mentioned believing in Christ as part of the package, but here all that is said is faith. So, lets say a new believer, or non-believers first encounter with any scripture is this verse. Would they be inclined to thinking that faith is all that is necessary to be a son of God, or in other words to be saved or accepted into the family of God? Yes, of course.

That’s why the Bible says we must meditate on this book day and night. This verse also says we must be sure to obey everything written in it, and only then will we prosper and succeed in all we do (Joshua 1:8). There are other reasons why to meditate on this book daily, and obey everything in it. This book has the power to cleanse you, bring you salvation, build you up, strengthen you and encourage you. This book also can be used incorrectly, without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, people can twist scripture, dillute scripture, justify how that scripture doesnt refer to them, or just pretend they didnt read that one.

My point and goal over the last three Salvation posts was to illustrate how we must never be hung up on any one verse. We must not allow ourselves to grow spiritually stubborn, we must study the Word, and obey and live by everything as a whole. The beautiful gift in scripture is that it should alwasy back itself up somewhere. Every verse can be backed up by another one.
