<186> Thesis: Justification by faith is primarily about believing in the God of prophecy and power, and, then, secondarily about believing what the God of prophecy and power has said to the believer. Introduction: In our study last week we addressed the issue of the "application" of Scripture to our own particular lives. We saw that there is a very real problem in the area of "expectations" -- particularly in the area of expectation of what is to happen in us because we have believed. There are many problems in this area and they can only be resolved as we discover not only that we are justified by faith but also who we are to trust and for what. This evening we are going to pursue this issue: what is the content of our faith?
