And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account (Hebrews 4:13).
Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth (Luke 18:8)?
14 For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect, 16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all (Romans 4:14, 16).
Who are the heirs of this world? Are they the “goody-two-shoes?” The ones who keep all the rules and perform all the rituals? Well, that leaves me out! I really want to do everything just right, but I find I simply can’t do it. When I should be turning left, I find myself turning right. I meant to say one thing, and out of my mouth popped something else.
Thank goodness none of these things make me qualified to be an heir of God, a fellow heir of Jesus Christ. By my faith I am a child of God. All we who are born again are children of Abraham—by our faith, not by our behavior. Abraham set the precedent, and what he inherited, we inherit. He believed God when He promised impossible things, and so they came to pass. Our faith works the same way. When we believe God, even though all we can see is impossibility, we receive.
