Never Stop Believing

"The just shall live by faith."

Not "we should live," as though there were actually another way...

But rather--
that unshakable confidence in the promises, in the Providence, in the power of the Almighty is like the air that sustains our very life. That without it, we turn grey and cold and waxy hard.
For death is only life minus breath...

"The just shall live by faith."

...and that this confidence all consuming, this believing that grips so deeply it necessarily changes the believer himself, shall not alone be the air that fills lungs with life, but also the spring from which newness of life flows... "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed, from faith to faith."

"The just shall live by faith."

...and that the necessary result should be fidelity.
Because the end of faith is faithfulness.

"The just shall live by faith."

Never, never, ever stop believing.


  1. Amen! Whatsoever is not of faith, is not of God! Thanks for the thoughts, Sean!

  2. Amen, I've been so convicted on this the past few days Sean.

    That "unshakeable confidence..." makes all the difference in the world.
    "Because the end of faith is faithfulness."--and how soon our faith will become sight. I can hardly wait...
