    We need to receive (the teaching of) grace so that we could have obedience to the faith (Rom 1:5); This is why we are sent a minister to impart the spiritual gift (of grace in it’s teaching) so that we can be established in the faith, and this is all by the will of God (Rom 1:11-10); For the just can only live by His faith (Hab 2:4).

    We can only have the faith OF Christ PROVIDING God crucifies us with Christ so that “we” are no longer living (for our own selfish selves), but Christ living in us (so that we can be and live for others); Without going through this crucifying process, we cannot have the faith OF Christ. (Gal 2:20)

    Going through this process, is how we come from (our) faith to (Christ’s) faith; And all of this is so that we can live just by faith (Rom 1:17); Meaning we can only live just by His faith (Hab 2:4); For we can only be saved by grace through the faith that is in the gifted workmanship of God that creates Christ in us, so that we would not boast (that we brought Christ into ourselves) (Eph 2:10-8).

    This gifted work of God upon us needs to be asked for (Jn 4:10). The faith of God’s elect can acknowledge that all of this truth is after godliness (Ts 1:1) Is your pastor teaching you this form of doctrine so that you could have the faith of Christ ? (Rom 6:17, Gal 2:20) OR has your pastor taught you that you can bring Christ into yourself?

    The righteousness of God in faith says that “no one” can bring Christ into themselves (Rom 10:6-7); Believers who are ignorant of God’s righteousness go about to establish “their own” righteousness because they have not “learned how” to submit themselves to the righteousness of God (Rom 10:3); Consequently, these ignorant believers have a zeal for God, but it’s not according to knowledge (10:2).

    Whatsoever is not of faith IS sin (Rom 14:23); Therefore we can only be justified by the faith OF Christ (Gal 2:16); NOT “our” faith (Rom 1:8); We can only receive the promise of the Spirit through (the) faith (of Christ). (Gal 3:14)

    Have you come from (your) faith to (the) faith (of Christ) ? (Rom 1:17)

    Faith towards God is needed, if we are going to have the foundation of repentance laid in the doctrine of Christ (Heb 6:1); For no one can even do the will of God without the knowledge of this doctrine of God in Christ (Jn 7:17); And God needs to work all of this truth into us, so that it’s light (of knowledge in it’s truth) could come out of us (Jn 3:21).
    For without this, we only believe in Jesus and we are under the new condemnation of loving darkness because are deeds are evil “self-motivated” (Jn 3:19); Believers who hate the light (because their deeds are evil), will not come to the light (of this knowledge in it’s truth) because their deeds would be corrected (Jn 3:20).

    We need to believe in the light if we are going to be the children of light (Jn 12:36); Whosoever comes to the light (by God working) does not abide in darkness (12:46); Reject all of these words; and you reject JESUS (12:48) Have you had the spiritual gift (of grace in it’s teaching) imparted unto you by someone, so that you could be established in the faith? (Rom 1:11-12).

    Jesus said, “Those who can receive whom He has sent, unto them shall receive the Father who sent Christ. (Jn 13:20).

    The purpose of Jesus is to make us minister these things unto others (Acts 26:16); Therefore only disobedient ministers remove (what the fruits of) repentance are after we turn to God, so that we could have the deeds that are fit for repentance (26:19-20).

    We have to bring forth the fruits worthy of repentance (Lk 3:8); Without which Jesus said the axe is laid upon us (trees), and believers who do not bring forth good fruit are hewn down, and cast into the fire (Lk 3:9). Have you asked God to help you examine yourself so that you can see if you are in the faith (rather than your own faith) within the proof of the scriptures, so that you would not be a reprobate concerning the faith?? (2Cor 13:5).
