Our idea of Faith has a good deal to do with the harmful way faith is often spoken of…

Isaiah asked what we all ask at one time or another: “Does anyone care, God? Is anyone listening and believing a word of it?”  The point is: Before you trust, you have to listen. But unless Christ’s Word is preached, there’s nothing to listen to.  Romans 10:7 (The Message)

Our idea of Faith has a good deal to do with the harmful way faith is often spoken of.  Faith is looked upon as an attitude of mind whereby we assent to a testimony on the authority of the one who testifies.

In effect, we say that because Jesus says these things, we believe in Him. The faith of the New Testament is infinitely more than that: it is the means by which sanctification is manifested, the means of introducing the life of God into us, NOT the effect of our understanding only!

In Romans 3:24-25, Paul speaks about faith in the blood of Jesus, and faith is the instrument the Spirit uses.

Faith is more than an attitude of mind; faith is the complete, passionate, earnest trust of our whole nature in the gospel of God’s grace as it is presented in the life and death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Oswald Chambers
