What Faith Knows

The believer testifies, I know that my sins are forgiven by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. The doubter will ask, How can I know for sure? The Bible gives a clear answer, The just shall live by faith (Habakkuk 2:4). 

Do you have faith that Christ lives in your life? Faith knows for sure. It is a faith that comes by hearing the word of God. Such faith is an abiding gift of the Holy Spirit. Faith that's sure can confess, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me (Galatians 2:20). Faith knows for sure!

Do you have faith in God and His Son Jesus Christ? If you do, it's because the Spirit of grace is working in your heart. God's Spirit delivers you from doubt and unbelief to faith in the living God. For by grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). That's how faith knows.

Faith knows for sure, because Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of our faith. If you don't have faith that's sure, look unto Jesus to do in you what you cannot do for yourself. He will be the source of your faith that's sure. Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2).
