What then shall we say was gained by Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.” -- (Romans 4:1-3 ESV) Trust is a major issue in our time. All you need to do is listen to any coverage of this year's elections to see it. Who do you trust? Are they telling the truth? Do I trust them enough to put my vote of confidence behind them? Our trust and faith however extends beyond our politics. They are vital in our spiritual life as well. This week we take a look at the third Sola - Sola Fide or Faith Alone. This theological maxim continues to define the gospel for us. This week we will open up Romans 4 to look at this truth. I want to encourage you to take a few minutes to slowly read through the passage. If you have more time, go back to Genesis 15 and explore the reference that Paul is making to Abraham. How did he come into a right relationship with God? This is going to be a vital week to understand where we place our trust for ultimate realities. Plan to be with us. And invite someone to come along!
