The Instrument of Faith – Romans 10:5-13

The Instrument of Faith – Romans 10:5-13

The apostle here explains the nature and use both of faith and confession; as true faith does not lie in the bare assent of the mind to the Gospel, or any truth contained in it, respecting the person and office of Christ, so neither does it lie, as not in the brain, so not in the tongue, but in the heart; it is not a notional knowledge of things to be believed; nor is it saying that a man believes; but it is heart work, a believing with all the heart; such a faith in which all the powers of the soul, the understanding, will, and affections, are concerned, it is a seeing of the Son, a beholding of the glory, fullness, suitableness, ability, and willingness of Christ as a Savior, with the eye of the understanding spiritually enlightened; it is a going out of the soul to Christ, in various acts, such as venturing into his presence, prostrating itself at his feet, resolving if it perishes it will perish there; a giving up itself unto him, determining it will have no other Savior, leaning and relying on him, and living upon him; which faith works by love to Christ, moves the affections, stirs up the desires of the soul to his name, and endears him and all that belong to him to it. – John Gill

Sunday Service has resumed! Click here for more information.

The following changes have been made to our service schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic:

We will have Sunday service from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM at Harvest Creek Venue and then dismiss for the day.  If you think it best to stay home then please stay home.  DO WHAT YOU THINK IS BEST FOR YOUR SITUATION.

Tuesday and Wednesday Bible studies will be combined.  We will meet at 7:00 PM on Wednesdays.  Call for details.

Sunday Service and Wednesday Bible study will be available as a Facebook live stream.  If you will be watching the live stream we recommend that you set aside the time for the service as if you were present.  We will pick songs that are familiar so you can sing along from home.  Please have your Bible open and ready to follow along for scripture reading and the sermon.

Hopefully this will soon pass and we can resume our normal schedule and activities.  Until then we will make adjustments as the need requires.  STAY SAFE and MAY GOD BLESS YOU.
