When we have this kind of faith, we are made right with God both now and eternally. There is nothing crazy about it. Faith is the biggest game-changer in Christian history, making us right with God through our faith in Jesus Christ. Faith means that we can trust God to work through us, even when our bodies fail us. It means we can trust Jesus to lead us, even when we wander through a thicket of difficult moral choices. It means we can trust the Holy Spirit to uplift us, even when we disappoint ourselves and others. Being righteous does not come from moral perfection; it is based on being made right with God through our faith in Jesus. We can thank Abraham the Adalatherium, a man of unusually rare and precious faith.
- Romans 4:13-25
