    Building on God

    “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness.” Why?—Because faith means building upon God and His word, and that means the receiving of the life of God in His word. Note in the verses last quoted, from Peter, that the foundation upon which the house is built is a living stone. The foundation is a living foundation, which gives life to those who come to it, so that the house which is built upon it is a living house. It grows by the life of the foundation. “Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established.” 22 Chronicles 20:20. In this text the words “believe” and “be established,” are both from the one root, “Amen,” and we might read it thus: “Build upon the Lord your God, so shall ye be built up.” But the foundation upon which we build is righteous: “The Lord is upright; He is my Rock, and and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” 3Psalm 92:15. Therefore since faith means to build upon God and His holy word, it is self-evident that faith is righteousness to the one who possesses and exercises it.EVCO 68.1
