Faith is the Chain

7 Jan

Faith is the work of God’s grace in us… Grace is the fountain and the stream; faith is the aqueduct along which the flood of mercy flows down to refresh the thirsty Sons of men… Never make a Christ out of your faith, nor think of it as if it were the independent source of your salvation. Our life is found in “looking unto Jesus,” not in looking to our own faith. By faith all things become possible to us; yet the power is not in the faith, but in that God upon whom the faith relies. Grace is the powerful engine, and faith is the chain by which the carriage of the soul is attached to the great motive power.

Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
