Religion celebrates past bible victories and hopes for future victories but is silent about today. As christians our victories are not in the sweet-by-and-by, faith is for the now! Today is the day of salvation!
I'm not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God into salvation.......... From therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, the just shall live by faith. Romans 1:16-17
Thank God for the gospel, I live by faith & I'm empowered. I'm not hopless.
