A sinner’s faith is true faith when he believes as a sinner

Spurgeon 3“Lord, I believe, help thou mine unbelief.” I like what Luther says “I would run into Christ’s arms if he had a drawn sword in his hands.” That is called venturesome believing, but as an old divine says, there is no such thing as venturesome believing, we cannot venture on Christ, it is no venture at all, there is no hap-hazard in the least degree. It is a holy and heavenly experience, when we can go to Christ, amid the storm, and say, “Oh! Jesus, I believe I am covered by thy blood,” when we can feel ourselves to be all over rags, and yet can say, “Lord, I believe that through Christ Jesus, ragged though I am, I am fully absolved.” A saint’s faith is little faith when he believes as a saint, but a sinner’s faith is true faith when he believes as a sinner. The faith, not of a sinless being but the faith of a sinful creature — that is the faith which delights God. Go, then Christian; ask that this may be thy experience, to learn each day, “He only is my rock and my salvation.”
