Paul teaches in his letter to Galatia that the Christian life rests on faith and faith alone. Not scripture, doctrine or right theology but faith alone and that faith is to be placed in a resurrected Savior who dwells heaven with God The Father.
This faith is completely existential which causes the awareness of a relationship with the Living Father God who sent His son for the purpose of restoring relationship.
In order for you to get the radical nature of what Paul is teaching he uses an example from the old testament. Not Moses who gave the Law and the first four books of the Tanach. As a Matter of Fact He choices an example that wrote zero pages in the bible, not one word or even one letter much less a coma.
Paul chooses Abraham a man who existed before there was such a thing as a Bible or any of the Physical trappings of religion. He picks a man who responds to a voice he hears which leads him on a journey of a life time. Abraham does not have a name or any information about the nature of this God who is the great I AM.
So he leaves what he knows and follows this voice by faith and faith alone, that this Voices promises are true. His faith over time is proved to be well placed in this Being who will be know as the God of Abraham Issac and Jacob.
He is taught one thing and that one thing is that He needs a God who meets Him more than halfway, or there is no chance of Him finishing this journey of faith. God tell us through the Apostle Paul that God considers this relationship based on faith, the grounds for Abraham being approved before God.
No Confessions, Just Faith
No Doctrines, Just Faith
No Churches, Just Faith
No Theology, Just Faith
This Faith in God’s faithfulness is called gospel, which is fully manifested in Jesus Christ. So Paul says all you need is Jesus, that word of God that came to Abraham in voice but has come to us in person, and all you need is to believe and it is that simple. You see Jesus has come through the ages to many people in any different ways and it is all Gospel. Anyone who is anybody who has cried to God, I want to know you help me has crossed paths with the Gospel of Father God.
Mary Baker Eddy
There was Jesus (The Word) long before the material world began, savior of a world He would help in create along The Father side.
All the Father has given Jesus he shall never lose, all kingdom and worlds without end, His ability to save that which is lost is His mission and desire.
BECAUSE IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE FATHERS DESIRE TO SEEK AND SAVE THAT WHICH IS LOST!!! THIS FAITH ALONE YOU SEE IS IN FACT GOD’S FAITH TO REACH OUT TO THAT HE LOVES WITH ALL HIS BEING.
