What is Faith?

September 21, 2012 Leave a comment

Faith is the confidence of things hoped for. They were persuaded of them and embraced them. They took them to their hearts, the promises of God, as if they were fulfilled. Faith became to them the substance, the confidence, the grounds of the thing that they hoped to obtain. Now, without faith it is impossible to please God. “For he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”

B. H. Carroll—The Faith that Saves—Triumphant Faith
