Faith Makes Us Sure of God’s Truth
Construction Zone 9: God's Gift - Salvation
What is "faith"?
Faith is a gift of God that makes us able to trust Him and believe His Gospel. Ephesians 2:8 – For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.
This Truth Makes
The way we receive God’s gift of salvation is through faith. True faith humbles people because it causes them to see how badly they need Jesus Christ. If people think they deserve salvation, they do not have true faith.
True faith is what makes us sure that Jesus saves desperate and needy sinners because of His goodness – not because of theirs.
Salvation begins and ends with the grace of God. He is the One Who has first given us the Gospel and His Holy Spirit. Nobody deserves salvation! Nobody can earn it! Everything needed for salvation is a gift of God.
