Today, over at the blog, Of First Importance, this quote reminded me of this real meaning of the Gospel again.
“It is not faith that saves, but faith in Jesus Christ… It is not, strictly speaking, even faith in Christ that saves, but Christ that saves through faith. The saving power resides exclusively, not in the act of faith or the attitude of faith or in the nature of faith, but in the object of faith.”
- B. B. Warfield quoted by Sinclair Ferguson, In Christ Alone (Lake Mary, FL: Reformation Trust Publishing, 2007), 43.
Read it, think about it, pray, and may that result you in praising, thanking, trusting, submitting, and yielding to God more than ever before.
