Faith Perfected –
“Faith does not grasp a doctrine, but a heart. The trust which Christ requires is the bond that unites souls with Him; and the very life of it is entire committal of myself to Him in all my relations and for all my needs, and absolute utter confidence in Him as all sufficient for everything that I can require”
– Alexander MacLaren
“…looking to Jesus,
the author and perfecter of faith…”
Faith lays hold of its author and looks to Him for its perfection in pure obedience.
“You see that faith worked with his works,
and by works faith was perfected“
Grace makes the heart willing to walk in the way of Faith.
“…but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith“
