Believing in Christ can bring His benefits into our lives and help us to serve Him effectively. Unbelieving, or having a lack of faith, can keep a lot of His benefits out of our lives and make us ineffective as His servants. Unbelief can rise up and totally block the way to God’s benefits.
Thankfully, it can happen the other way around as well, that faith can rise up and overcome all unbelief, and we can live by faith.
9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”
11 But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”
