This is a life of faith, for God will try the truth of our faith, so that the world may see that God has such servants as will depend upon His bare word.
— Richard Sibbes
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
