The Just Shall Live By Their Faith

Aug 07, 2016

Passage:Habakkuk 2:1-4

Speaker: Pastor Bob Graham

Series: A Study Through Habakkuk

Category: Evangelistic

Keywords: faith, justification, righteousness, salvation, sanctification, saved, just shall live by faith

Habakkuk has been alone with God, awaiting an answer to the perplexing questions he had about the way God was doing business. God answers with a foundational principle that served as bedrock beneath the bewildered prophet's feet. God made a distinction between two different kinds of people in this world - those whose souls were not upright within them and those who were just in the sight of God. And in eight short words, God gave an answer that not only forms the basis for our justification, but equally so for our sanctification as well... The just shall live by their faith. This powerful truth is at the heart of Paul's great doctrinal writings in the book of Romans. It was also the cornerstone of the Protestant Reformation.
