Saving Faith

RC Sproul writes the following: Saving faith is composed of information, intellectual assent, and personal trust. Saving faith involves content…Saving faith includes the mind’s assent to the truth of the gospel. There is an element of trust in saving faith. It involves personal reliance and dependence upon the gospel. 

This is one of the paradoxes of Christianity: Worldly poverty magnifies richness in God’s Grace. In my times of extreme darkness, Christ brings His brightest light to what I have in Him. When I am weakest, He makes me the strongest by revealing the incomparable gifts** He has given me.

*Romans 10:10
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
**Ephesians 2:8-10For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
