Part 7 – Faith

Faith is confidence in the faithfulness of God which leads to reliance and trust in God and obedience to Him (Hebrews 11:6). In salvation, faith is a voluntary change of mind and heart in the sinner in which the person turns to God, accepting and relying on His offer of salvation through Jesus Christ.

FAITH = BELIEF + TRUST + ACTION.

Faith does not operate in a vacuum. It must affect our:

  • Mind – by recognition of our need of salvation. Acknowledging Christ’s death on our behalf and our need of forgiveness.
  • Emotional (Heart) – by giving personal assent to the gospel - What must I do to be saved? Agree to make salvation a part of life.
  • Will – by a conscious turning of our inner affections and motivations to personal trust.

Another way of putting it is that we should:

  • Surrender the whole of our life to the Lordship of Christ (John 8:12; Romans 10:9)
  • Receive and appropriate Jesus into the life. (John 1:12; Revelation 3:20)
  • Accept His death on our behalf, and the forgiveness He offers (1 John 1:7,9).
