Faith Produces Righteousness

Galatians 3:1-9 (ESV)
1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified.
2 Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?
3 Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
4 Did you suffer so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?
5 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith—
6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?
7 Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham.
8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.”
9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.

 

Salvation always been by faith in OT  & NT.  If thinking I am I keeping Law you fooling self.  In Genesis 15 God considers Abraham’s faith righteousness.  Abel gave his gift to Lord by faith Cain followed the law inside head.  He expected God to be  pleased with is offering, God did not like his offering in Genesis 3 he killed his brother Abel out jealously.  Instead of living by the Law live by faith, faith produces good works.
