The Just Shall Live by Faith
The Epistle to the Romans is part of Paul’s trilogy on Habakkuk 2:4, “The Just Shall Live by Faith“:
|“The Just…” (Who are they?)||Romans (Rom 1:17)|
|“…Shall live” (How?)||Galatians (Gal 3:11)|
|“…By Faith!”||Hebrews (Heb 10:39)|
In this unique epistle, we encounter the greatest passages in all Scripture concerning the great principles according to which God’s judgment of human action must proceed. God has made known, in advance, how He will decide and act; otherwise, men would “imagine vain things” about the True God, and hug their delusions to their own damnation.
Why was “The Law” Given?
Why was “the Law” given? We would naturally assume that it was to provide a guide for our behavior, to get us to behave better, etc. It comes as a shock to discover that it was given so that sin would increase!4
The Law was given to expose our sin nature5 and to incite the sin nature to sin more;6 and, since the sin nature cannot be reformed, to drive us to despair of self-effort;7 and, thus, to drive us to dependence upon the Holy Spirit alone.8 This leads to the end of the reign of sin nature: Why, “it ain’t gonna ‘reign’ no more!”
The great triumvirate – redemption,9 propitiation,10 and reconciliation,11 – is totally the work of God, accomplished through the death of Jesus Christ. And it is all appropriated to us by faith. Faith is the one thing we can do which has no merit on our part.
This book gives us the most complete diagnosis of sin, salvation and justification. And the three verb tenses of “being saved“:
a) Have been saved: Positionally;12 from the penalty of sin, called justification salvation.
b) Are being saved: Operationally, by the Holy Spirit, moment by moment;13 from the powerof sin, called sanctification.
c) Shall be saved: from the presence of sin.14
