|The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: "All nations will be blessed through you." So those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.|
This is one of the most stunning passages that equate the Scripture with God. Notice how it "foresaw" and "announced the gospel in advance". The Scripture is addressed as a person. It's almost as if Paul is saying that when we look at Scripture it actually is looking at us! It is announcing the gospel to us just like it did for Abraham. For those who are like Abraham, the Scripture becomes a living, breathing power that blesses us with God's promises. We don't make the Scripture alive, it makes us alive!
