Christians Are Driven by God’s Promises and Directed By God’s Purposes

The gospel saves us, giving us a reason to walk through the wilderness to the promised land, and the law guides us, giving us directions for that journey.  Christians are driven by God’s promises, and directed by God’s purposes.  Two passages – Genesis 15 and Romans 4 – bring this point home powerfully.
