Faith to Faith
The walk of faith with God is what delivers a Christian from the effects of God’s anger towards the earth. Again Paul is not talking about faith that brings salvation, but he is talking about faith’s deliverance from God’s present wrath. Notice that verse 17 said that the righteous person shall live by faith.
16 For I am continually unashamed of the Gospel, for it is the inherent power of God for deliverance to everyone who is believing, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed out of faith unto faith; as it is written, "But the righteous person shall live by faith." (Rom 1:16-17)
Verses 16 and 17 are very clearly talking about the walk of faith as opposed to salvation by faith. You can see this by the phrase in verse 17 “out of faith unto faith.” Further, Paul stated the righteous person shall live by faith. So our experience with God is based on a daily exercise of faith in what Jesus has done for us and is doing for us, what the Holy Spirit is doing for us, and what God the Father is doing for us daily. As we are exercising faith, deliverance occurs. It is a deliverance from God’s abandonment of this world to its own insides. Are you exercising faith today in God as your good Father, the full sufficiency of the work of Christ and your identity with him?
