“Without Strength” By E.J. Waggoner

Christ — the Saviour of those who are “without strength”. (Based on Romans 5:6-9)   One motive only should actuate the minds of those who study the word of God, and that is that they may by this study be drawn nearer to God. God is no respecter of persons.

In the fourth chapter of the book of Romans we have faith in a concrete form. The narrative of the lives of Abraham and Sarai, in connection with the birth of Isaac, furnish a practical example of justification by faith. Abraham was not justified by works; but he believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Abraham received the seal of circumcision. Why? To cause him to believe? No, but because he had believed. It was a...
