What is faith? It is made up of three things – Knowledge, belief, and trust. Knowledge comes first. "I know WHOM I have believed." "How shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?" I need to be informed of a fact before I can possibly believe it. The mind goes on to Believe that these things are true. "I am persuaded that HE IS ABLE to keep..." The heart believes that Jesus Christ is in truth our God and Saviour. One more ingredient is needed, and that is Trust! Commit yourself to the merciful God. "I know whom I have believed and I am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have COMMITTED to Him." Rest your hope on the gracious Gospel; trust your soul to the living Redeemer.
C. H. Spurgeon
