Samuel Rutherford – Faith

Samuel Rutherford - Faith

“THE faith that God requireth of sinners is that they rely upon Christ, as despairing of their own righteousness, leaning wholly and withal humbly, as weary and laden, upon Christ as on the resting stone laid in Zion. But He seeks not that without being weary of their sin they rely on Christ as mankind’s Savior, for to rely on Christ and not be weary of sin is presumption, not faith. Faith is ever neighbor to a contrite spirit, and it is impossible that faith can be where there is not a cast-down and contrite heart in some measure for sin.”

Excerpt From: Rutherford, Samuel. “31 Days With Samuel Rutherford.” Lewis Publishing, iBooks.
