Faith a commitment to the promises of Christ and to to the demands of Christ



"Faith is not only a commitment to the promises of Christ;
faith is also a commitment to the demands of Christ."
- William Barclay

"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while
you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
These have come so that your faith - of greater worth than gold,
which perishes even though refined by fire -
may be proved genuine and may result in praise,
glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed."
1 Peter 1:6-7

I am aware of what Jesus Christ did preach and listen to his words brought to us by the gospel.
God let that Good News penetrate me and be as cement for a brick of my faith.
