Jesus' Faith or Yours -- Who's ?
K.J.V. Rom. 3:22
Even the righteousness of God which is by Faith of Jesus Christ…
This is very true.
This idea about the faith OF God (as opposed to faith IN God) became settled in my heart and mind several years ago and has considerably helped me since.
I will tell you a true story:
I was raised in a severely abusive home. As such, I never obtained for myself a proper image of an earthly parent. So, later when I married and our own son arrived, the only thing that I was most certain about was that I wouldn't do the things which my own parents had done. Other than that, I had no clue how a father should properly behave and act.
So, I asked the Lord to be sure and teach me how to be a proper parent; after all, He is the father of all the living and so would surely know something about parenting skills.
It was easy not to physically harm my son. I could come against that temptation in an instant.
However, it was my mental and emotional posture towards him which was the most difficult thing to deal with and change.
For example: one day, after many failures of my son's promises not to wet his pants anymore, I took him by the hand and emptied the laundry basket before him and showed him all his failed promises. I actually took each piece of soiled clothing out of the laundry basket and threw it down before him on the floor.
He stood there utterly crushed.
I was so proud of myself about the valuable lesson I was teaching my son.
I left him my son standing there staring at his soiled laundry and I returned to sit on the couch.
I don't know how to describe it, but it was as I was hearing an audible thought saying: "Is that how your heavenly Father treats you when you do wrong?".
The words pierced my heart to the very core.
And, then another thought came to me saying: "You should have told him that he did not have to continue wetting his pants. That he could be strong and that you would be there to help him through it".
The realization of what I had done brought me near to tears.
Then I heard, "My son, you have to have the same faith about your child that I have over my own children. Go back and hug him and tell him of your faith in him and of your faith in his desire to do good".
The change which happened with my son was incredible. It was as if a huge burden had been lifted from his shoulders. He no longer had to hide or feel ashamed for his wetting issues.
That's how I first learned about the faith of
