Galatians 3:11 - Living by Faith!

Gal.3:11; Living by Faith!

Gal 3:11 (KJV)  The just shall live by faith. 

We have met this verse before: "The just shall live by faith" 
(Rom. 1:17; Heb. 10:38). This little verse from Habakkuk is so rich 
that God wrote three NT commentaries on it! [Wiersbe Expository 

Habakkuk states the fundamental principle of the gospel: "the 
just shall live by his faith." To divest oneself of the feeling of 
security in oneself, to believe God's message, and to trust in Him means 
life and happiness for the soul. [Believer's SB] 

Trying to be right with God ("justified") by our own effort 
doesn't work. Good intentions such as "I'll do better next time" or 
"I'll never do that again" usually end in failure. Paul points to 
Habakkuk's declaration (Habakkuk 2:4) that by trusting God - - believing in 
his provision for our sins and living each day in his power - - we 
can break this cycle of failure.  [Life Application SB]
