Monday's Message of Hope
Hello, dear friend
You may have noticed by now that I love word studies. I get excited when God illuminates a particular word or phrase and, then, discover how it impacts my life. The word “live” in Romans 1:17 caught my attention, so I decided to check it out.
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:17, NKJV)
What an exciting treasure I found! To help you grasp the revelation in a deeper context, I’m going to substitute the original Hebrew meaning in the verse. While Paul wrote Romans in Greek, the vernacular of the day, “The just shall live by faith,” is a quote from Habakkuk 2:4, which was written in Hebrew. Let’s get started:
The just shall “revive” by faith.
The just shall “keep alive” by faith.
The just shall “be nourished” by faith.
The just shall “be preserved” by faith.
The just shall “recover” by faith.
The just shall “be repaired by faith.
The just shall “be restored to life” by faith.
The just shall “be saved” by faith.
The just shall “be whole” by faith.
What incredible promises—just by living by faith! I hope you take some time to meditate and soak in these wonderful promises of living by faith this week. I plan to.
Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.
Have a blessed week living by faith!
