Insight on faith

Filed under: God, Jesus, Spirit, life — the3rdone @ 10:28 पूर्वाह्न

The doctrine of the Bible is that Christ saves His people through faith; that Christ’s Spirit is received by faith to dwell in the heart. It is faith that works by love. Love is wrought and sustained by faith. By faith, we overcome the world, the flesh and the devil. It is by faith that we quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. It is by faith that we put on the Lord Jesus Christ; and put off the old man, with his deeds. It is by faith that we “stand”, and by resolutions we fall. This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
It is by faith that the flesh is kept under and carnal desires subdued, and by faith that we receive the Spirit of Christ to work in us to will and to do, according to his good pleasure. He sheds abroad His own love in our hearts, and thereby en-kindles ours…nothing but the life and energy of the Spirit of Christ can save us from sin, and trust is the universal condition for the working of his saving energy within us…
When we open the door by implicit trust, he enters in and takes up his abode with us and in us. By shedding abroad his love He quickens our souls into sympathy with himself, and in this way, and in this way alone, He purifies our hearts through faith.
