The Nature of Saving Faith

LORDSHIP AND THE NATURE OF SAVING FAITH

“We must properly distinguish between justifying faith and spurious faith… The consequences of remaining in deception are too enormous to neglect self-examination. There is a faith which will not save, and men must be warned of its fatal consequences. We are justified by faith alone, but true faith has distinguishing traits… This saving belief is in the whole Christ, the Christ of the Bible—the only Mediator who right now is Prophet, Priest and King of His church… This saving faith must reach the whole man. It must reach his mind—that is what he thinks with. It must reach his emotions, or affections—that is what he feels with. It must reach his will—that is what he decides with and acts with.” (Ernest Reisinger)

The Fullness of Christ in the Gospel

THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST IN THE GOSPEL

“The gospel is that the sovereign Lord who directs and protects, is also the great Prophet who teaches and enlightens, and also the High Priest whose blood de-sins and whose righteousness wraps us about safe and sound for time and eternity. This one Saviour is freely offered to all. He is one God and Surety and by Himself He has fulfilled all those three offices for every one of His people… This complete Christ of the three offices is for you. I am saying that this is our message in the glory of the gospel. God draws near and He makes men an offer. God visits and makes us a proposition. God offers forgiveness. He promises more. He offers us Himself.” (Geoff Thomas)
