You can either have faith in Christ, faith through Christ or the very same faith of Christ. As we move unto perfection (i.e. maturity) from salvation to sanctification to purification, you will experience these various quantum levels of faith. At the having “faith through Christ” level, we awaken to righteousness, seek righteousness, pursue righteousness and do righteousness:
- “AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame” (1 Corinthians 15:34 KJV).
- “But SEEK FIRST His kingdom and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; and all these things shall be provided to you” (Matthew 6:33).
- “Now flee from youthful lusts, and PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the LORD from a pure heart” (2 Timothy 2:22).
- “Break away from your sins by DOING RIGHTEOUSNESS” (Daniel 4:27 NASB).
Please note that a person does not seek or pursue something that they already have.
Let’s all receive the seal of righteousness, like Abraham did before he was circumcised, which is upon all who believe (Rom 3:22). Let’s all walk in the steps of faith, which is the righteousness of faith, knowing that the evidence of the trying of our faith will be found at the appearing of Messiah Yeshua (Rom 4:11-14; 1 Peter 1:7). Let’s all be faithful and true by making our faith perfect through doing what we believe (James 2:22).
Give em heaven!!!
