The Gift of Faith

John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

In Genesis 14, the man of faith, Abraham, whose strength is in prayer, preserves his journey and priestly character in separation from the world, and dwells in Hebron-that is, he gets the support of fellowship with Christ alone-and is victorious over the world, while Lot falls under its power.

Then the overcomer gets the blessing of the priest: he meets Melchizedek-a wonderful type of the royalty and priesthood of Christ and in the good of the blessing �soon to fill a world of peace, increase and fulfilled delight� he refuses to take anything from the king of Sodom, �not even a thread to a sandal thong�. That is the blessed superiority of faith. And if Abram would not have anything from the world he got great compensation, for he got Jehovah as his shield and exceeding great reward. Thus all things are now available.  Grace is free but faith cost your life.

It was not a question of what God would give him, but of what God Himself would be to him. John 4 comes to one�s mind when one thinks of God Himself as the portion of faith. The Lord proposes there that the giving God should be known, and when we consider the character of His giving we see that in giving His Son and His Spirit He is really giving Himself. His gifts are not such as can be enjoyed at a distance from the Giver, for it is Himself, as known in the Son and by the Spirit, who becomes the portion and joy of the believer.

Today is the joy and rejoicing of our heart!  Jeremiah 15:16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.
