Faith. What is it? What is your salvation based on? Is it a result of what you have done, accomplished or earned? Because you’re basically a good person or observed a certain ritual or routine? Or, do you understand that there is nothing you can do; it is only by faith that anyone is counted righteous. Dr. John’s biblical definition of faith would be this: “Faith is really all about trusting ourselves fully into the hands of God, on the basis of truth.” Romans 4 makes God’s message clear: the forgiveness of sin, salvation, comes by way of faith and faith alone.
