“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” – Romans 1:17
“But to understand what it means to live by faith, we must understand what faith is. Faith is more than belief. It is complete trust in God accompanied by action. It is more than wishing. When we say “the just shall live by faith,” we mean we are guided and directed by our faith. We act in a manner that is consistent with our faith—not out of a sense of thoughtless obedience but out of a confident and sincere love for our God and for the priceless wisdom He has revealed to His children.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf
