We ARE because He IS...

"Faith always looks at problems in the light of the promises ... He knew that God could keep His promises (because of His power) and He knew that He would do so (because of His faithfulness). He was fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. This is why, Paul adds, namely because He believed God's promise; "It was credited to him as righteousness". Rob Rufus

"The promise in mind must still be Genesis 15:5 that Abraham's posterity would be as numerous as the stars. It was a promise without any conditions or requirements attached to it. God's Word came to Abraham as a gratitutious promise - not as law. He simply believed God and was justified". John Stott

The promise of God through faith is..."Christ in you, the hope of glory"...i.e. 100% righteous. His very own righteousness...that we would walk as Jesus did...with faith in THAT righteousness, faith in THAT holiness, faith in THAT word....faith in the FACT that we ARE because He IS.......
