It is the nature of faith to believe God upon His bare word… It will not be, saith sense; it cannot be, saith reason; it both can and will be, saith faith, for I have a promise.
— John Trapp
There is no blessed way of living, than the life of faith upon a covenant-keeping God – to know that we have no care, for he cares for us; that we need have no fear, except to fear him; that we need have no troubles, because we have cast our burdens upon the Lord, and are conscious that he will sustain us.
— C. H. Spurgeon
It is never on account of its formal nature as a psychic act that faith is conceived in Scripture to be saving. It is not, strictly speaking, even faith in Christ that saves, but Christ that saves through faith. The saving power resides exclusively, not in the act of faith or the attitude of faith or nature of faith, but in the object of faith.
— Benjamin B. Warfield
