Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

August 31, 2010 (persevering faith)

persevering faith

“Another guarantee of our inheritance
is our persevering faith.
Peter said we are protected
by God’s power through faith (1 Pet. 1:5).
Faith is God’s gift to us;
we don’t generate it
on our own (Eph. 2:8-9; Phil. 1:29).
Faith is aroused by grace,
upheld by grace, and energized by grace.
Grace reaches into the soul of the believer,
generating and maintaining faith.
By God’s grace alone we trust Christ,
and by grace we continue to believe.”
- John MacArthur
