LIVING BY FAITH.
 ===============In Rom. 1:17 the apostle Paul makes the followingstatement, "For therein is the righteousness of God revealedfrom faith to faith; as it is written, The just shall live byfaith." This statement is the summing up of what theapostle has to say about the gospel in verse 16. The gospelis the power of God unto salvation, but only "to everyonethat believeth;" in it the righteousness of God is revealed.The righteousness of God is the perfect law of God (Isa.51:6, 7; Ps. 119:172), which is but the transcript of Hisrighteous will (Ps. 40:7, 8).

But Paul goes right back to thevery beginning and cites an instance of saving faith. Hesays, "By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellentsacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he
