The righteous will live by faith

“For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ‘The righteous will live by faith.’” Romans 1:17

Romans 1:17 captures the essence of the gospel message, highlighting the righteousness of God that is made available to us through faith. it emphasizes that our relationship with God is based on faith, not on our own merits or achievements. This verse encourages believers to place their trust in God’s righteousness and to live a life characterized by faith in Him.


It encourages believers to walk in faith, aligning their thoughts, beliefs, and actions with the truths of God’s Word and trusting in His faithfulness and grace.


Living by faith means relying on a belief system or set of principles that guide one’s actions, choices, and worldview. It involves trusting in the wisdom, goodness, and guidance to our God, and aligning one’s life according to the teachings and values associated with that faith.
