What is faith in Jesus Christ?
Faith in Jesus Christ is acknowledging the truth of everything that God has revealed in his Word, trusting in him, and also receiving and resting on him alone for salvation as he is offered to us in the gospel.
(New City Catechism)
Price paid – rest. The promise lies in deepest past: Adam’s offspring crushes heads of serpents with his heel. Rest, receive: the Word tells all a soul must know. Adam’s stain to stainless death, many sons brought glory. Trust the truth: though sin clamours at our ears, better words are spoken in the blood which pleads for us.
